I have just started reading a powerful novel in verse called  "Who will
tell my brother?" by Marlene Carvell.  It won an IRA Children's Book Award
in 2003, and is published by Hyperion.  From the back cover, "Evan, a
mixed-race teenager, decides to persuade high school officials to remove
offensive Indian mascots....a struggle that spirals him onto to a
soul-searching journey... a timely look at the story of a teen caught up
in an exploration of his past, his culture and his identity."

It is a story told in 1st person - at the end of the book Evan says "I
know my struggle is not over....But I know I have made a difference"  -  a
thoughtful and insightful book!
