Patricia Park in Conversation with Dolen Perkins-Valdez

Alejandra Verónica Kim doesn’t belong anywhere. At her wealthy Manhattan high school, her Spanish name and Korean face confound her mostly white classmates and teachers. In her Jackson Heights neighborhood, she’s not Latinx enough. Even at home, Ale feels unwelcome, especially since Papi's body was discovered on the subway tracks. Ale wants nothing more than to escape to prestigious Wyder University. But when a microaggression at school thrusts Ale into the spotlight — and into a discussion she didn’t ask for — Ale must discover what is means to carve out a space for yourself to belong.
