Nina Armstrong is a fourteen year old biracial girl who's father is black and mother is white. Since her parents split up, her life is turned upside down and everything she thought she knew is different. Everything her parents taught her about herself is up in the air and she doesn't know what to believe anymore. Nina feels she doesn't fit in with her family or her friends at school so, she finds solace in her great-great grandmother's, Sarah, story of freedom.
Black, White, Other: In Search of Nina Armstrong is about a biracial teen named Nina Armstrong whose life changes once her parents split up. She has to adjust to a black and white world. She has white and black friends. They both want her to choose a race, but she wants things to stay the same. This book had a story within a story format that parallel Nina's story to her great-great grandmother story. This was a good book. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. This is a book about self-acceptance and self-love.
