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!
