Hope Isabell Monk (Author), Janice Lee Porter (Illustrator) After someone asks whether she's "mixed", second-grader Hope, a biracial child, wonders what that means. Her great aunt assures her that as the child of a white father and an African-American mother, she represents "generations of faith mixed with lots of love.” As she listens to Aunt Poogee recount her family’s history and the story behind her name, Hope learns to feel proud of her biracial heritage and how to handle questions about her racial status in the future.
