    Book Description:

    STARRED REVIEW! "Armed with her own unique power phrase—’I’m Lulu Lovington, the ONE and only!’—Lulu feels empowered to handle any questions that come her way…. This book does more than simply tell a single story of biracial experience: it talks about navigating everyday racism in sensitive, but frank, ways. This affirmation is just as important as the power phrase…. All children will benefit from this pitch-perfect discussion of race, identity, complexity, and beauty."—Kirkus

    Lulu loves her family, but people are always asking;

    What are you?

    Lulu hates that question. Her brother inspires her to come up with a “power phrase” so she can easily express who she is, not what she is.

    Includes a note from the author, sharing her experience as the only biracial person in her family and advice for navigating the complexity of when both parents do not share the same racial identity as their children.
