The question is not what I am, but who I am.
Being in a part Black and part White family seems to confuse the people around Lulu. They say a lot of mean things because they think her family doesn’t fit in. She especially hates that question: What are you?
When Lulu asks her brother, Zane, how he handles that question, Zane helps Lulu find her power phrase.
