      The Girl Who Fell From the Sky by Heidi Durrow sounds like it. “After a devastating family tragedy in Chicago with Rachel the only survivor, she goes to live with the paternal grandmother she’s never met, in a decidedly black neighborhood in Portland, Ore. Suddenly, at 11, Rachel is in a world that demands her to be either white or black.”

    My favourite book I read this year was Julie Otsuka’s “When the Emperor Was Divine”. Beautiful and very well-written little book.
