Open Mic: Riffs on Life Between Cultures in Ten Voices

by Mitali Perkins

Published by Candlewick Press, 2013
127 pages
ISBN: 978𢠩636-58663

Age 13 and older

Ten authors for young adults explore the intersection of culture and identity in a variety of styles and tones, from humorous to loving to conversational to let抯-face-the-truth matter of factness. That range is highlighted by notable pieces from Gene Luen Yang, G. Neri, Francisco X. Stork, Naomi Shihab Nye, and Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich, and prefaced by Mitali Perkins抯 introduction, in which she recommends humor as the ideal tool for negotiating potentially tense conversations about 揼rowing up between cultures. Some of these selections are funny while others take a different approach, but all offer welcome entr閑 into a subject zone often approached with caution.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
