Blended features an engaging look into the life of Isabella, a 12 year old who finds herself divided between her divorced parents, spending different weeks with her white mother and her black father. While living in two worlds, will Isabella figure out who she is? Readers will find themselves engaged with Isabella and her day to day life. Draper also captures many social justice topics relevant today. Check it out on Overdrive today!
