*Having read this since initially posting, I see I was misinformed, and the MC is not in fact biracial; she’s in a mixed-race family. (She and her mother are Black, her stepbrother and stepfather are white.) However,┬áthe book does have her dealing with being Black and Jewish, so perhaps bicultural would be a better adjective here.
