A very quick & easy read, a funny memoir by former model and humorist Mishna Wolff about her childhood--"too white" to easily fit in with her predominantly black neighborhood of Seattle, while simultaneously too poor and "black" to fit in with her rich white classmates when she is moved to a different school. Mishna can't dance, sing, double-dutch and is the worse player on her basketball team while her father desperately tries to make her "down." An entertaining look at her exploration of identity and race relations.
