I feel as though I’ve been seen in the book Blended by Sharon M. Draper. The main protagonist is Isabelle, a light-skinned girl. She loves piano and she has a stepbrother. I don’t have a stepbrother, but I do have a brother who doesn’t live with me. We both have things in common. She likes to play piano. She and I have the same skin tone and we both have brothers. I feel as though Blended also gives me a chance to feel seen by showing the struggles for African Americans being threatened.
