Editorial Review

Sarah Park Dahlen

Cover: See No Color

“In See No Color, Shannon Gibney makes plain through her protagonist Alex’s story that being both black and adopted is complicated. Gibney honestly portrays hardships that black adoptees may face, such as racist comments from family members and the awkwardness of encountering other black people. As the story unfolds, Alex comes to a better understanding of being an adopted black teenager in a white world, but the journey is not easy, nor is it over by the book’s end. Drawing on Gibney’s own experiences as a transracial adoptee, See No Color is a powerful and necessary story.”―Sarah Park Dahlen, Assistant Professor of Library Science and co-editor of Diversity in Youth Literature: Opening Doors Through Reading
