Gabby Fierro is a regular teenage girl. She worries about grades, boys, college and family. She’s in the top 10 in her class and has everything going for her. If only it was so simple. Instead of concerning herself with where she is going to school and what prom dress to get, Gabby is getting it from both ends about her ethnicity. Between her best friend calling her a “wetback” and the annoying girl in her gym class harassing her about being “too white” Gabby is a confused ball of nerves. She is proud of her Mexican heritage but she also doesn’t feel she needs to fall into one of the Mexican stereotypes. To Gabby she is an American with Mexican roots and doesn’t understand why she needs to be considered one or the other. With the help of her family and friends Gabby has to look at herself and see what it actually means to ‘act so white’.
From the writer of the Double Threat series and More Than a Friend Request comes a story of a girl just trying to figure out what it means to be herself with out any labels.
