When the Black Girl Sings

by Bil Wright(Simon Pulse; ages 12+)



Buy the book

When Lahni, the only African-American student in her school, is chosen to participate in the school's singing competition, she's reluctant to be in the spotlight. That is, until her mother takes her to a multiracial church--with a choir that helps Lahni find her voice.

"In the beginning, I said that my adopted father was black. To me, it seemed easier than telling a group of white girls that two white people had adopted me and having to answer a lot of questions."
