Eleven-year-old Isabella's blended family is more divided than ever in this thoughtful story about divorce and racial identity from the award-winning and New York Times bestselling author of Out of My Mind, Sharon M. Draper. Eleven-year-old Isabella's parents are divorced, so she has to switch lives every week: One week she's Isabella with her dad, his girlfriend Anastasia, and her son Darren living in a fancy house where they are one of the only black families in the neighborhood. The next week she's Izzy with her mom and her boyfriend John-Mark in a small, not-so-fancy house that she loves. Because of this, Isabella has always felt pulled between two worlds. And now that her parents are divorced, it seems their fights are even worse, and they're always about HER. Isabella feels even more stuck in the middle, split and divided between them than ever. And she's is beginning to realize that being split between Mom and Dad is more than switching houses, switching nicknames, switching backpacks: it's also about switching identities. Her dad is black, her mom is white, and strangers are always commenting: "You're so exotic!" "You look so unusual." "But what are you really?" She knows what they're really saying: "You don't look like your parents." "You're different." "What race are you really?" And when her parents, who both get engaged at the same time, get in their biggest fight ever, Isabella doesn't just feel divided, she feels ripped in two. What does it mean to be half white or half black? To belong to half mom and half dad? And if you're only seen as half of this and half of that, how can you ever feel whole? It seems like nothing can bring Isabella's family together again--until the worst happens. Isabella and Darren are stopped by the police. A cell phone is mistaken for a gun. And shots are fired.… (mere)

Eleven-year-old Isabella’s blended family is more divided than ever in this “timely but genuine” (Publishers Weekly) story about divorce and racial identity from the award-winning and New York Times bestselling author of Out of My Mind, Sharon M. Draper. ~Amazon
  stlukeschurch | Mar 27, 2021 |
I haven't read anything by Sharon M. Draper since "Fish Out of Water", which I loved, and I found "Blended" to be just as good. Isabella is such a relatable character with a delightful sense of humour. However, life for Isabella can be difficult as she tries to find her own identity. To make matters more complicated she is the child of a white mother and black father, and often has to deal with racial taunts. Sundays are especially hard when she is exchanged from one parent to the other.

"Blended" has some serious issues including divorce, racism, class, stereotyping, police prejudice and step-families but Ms Draper has handled them with care and presented them in an age-appropriate manner. Highly recommended for younger readers. ( )

Plot Summary: Isabella has Mom weeks and Dad weeks. All of her friends know to ask which week it is, because she acts a little differently depending on where she is. Not only is she split between houses, she feels split between races because her mom is white and dad is black. She has a giant impressive piano at her dad's house and a Casio keyboard at her mom's. And right now, she has drama at both parents houses too. Her mom's boyfriend asks Isabella if he can propose to her mom. She isn't sure what to think about it but knows how happy they make each other and so she agrees. While out at a fancy restaurant with her dad, Anastasia, and Darren, her dad pops the question too. Now both parents are making wedding plans, and they're also being petty and fighting with each other, purposefully arriving to the drop off location at the mall late, making the other parent furious. Will her families get along during her huge piano recital, a day she's been looking forward to for months?

Setting:

Characters:
Isabella Thornton - 11 yo, plays the piano
Logan Lindquist - classmate who put a noose in Imani's locker
Dad and Anastasia - Black, live in a giant house
Darren - Anastasia's son, at least 16, kind and involved in Isabella's life
Mom and John Mark - white

Recurring Themes: race, blended families, divorce, piano, identity

Controversial Issues: noose in Imani's locker

Personal Thoughts: I thought this book was alright. It was a little slow to read but I think it's an important book to have and promote because of the small number of books that feature biracial children.

Genre: realistic fiction

DRAFT THOUGHTS ---

Sharon Drapers book follows each week as she goes between her white mother & black fathers houses - not having a household that feels like her own. The book explores the feelings of being a 2 home divorce kid, step families, class & race issues. At the end there is an intense confrontation with police (a BLM type of scene) that I felt like was almost too much .... ( )

Summary:

This 11 year old girl named Isabella who lives in Ohio is going through some tough changes. Her mother who is white and her father who is black are getting divorced. She hears them arguing the night before she hears the sad news. Is it my fault?" she asks. Her father explains to her why it is not. Her father tells her that both of her parents have decided it is better for him to move out. She asks where. You will not believe his response! He said he got a job offer, yes this is great news, but until he tells her where, she is going to get upset. He says California! He actually moves back to Ohio not too long after, only another town away! Now every Monday she wakes up in a new bed.

Opinion:

This was overall a great book. The chapters make it very easy to read because one chapter would be titled Moms week. The next chapter would be titled Dads week. There are minimal characters which I love because then the story will not be confusing and hard to read. The book also is great because someone could relate to it. I love how there is diversity too, that has a huge impact as well. The front page is also very decorative and aesthetic with draws you to the book. ( )
