Hi, Joni,

You might take a look at the graphic novel New Kid by Jerry Craft.

I also really liked A Good Kind of Trouble by Lisa Moore Ramée for young people dealing with race-related questions, but I don’t remember any bullying-related content in that one.

Subject: [aisle] best middle school bullying/race relations books

I was asked to find a book to read with a behavior class that deals with school bullying and race relations (white/black)

Any suggestions?

The Skin I'm In was suggested but they wanted something set in current times if possible.
 I thought of Ghost or Ghost Boys also.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
