Simone wants a color, one that will show who she is inside and out. This engaging and beautiful picture book follows a young biracial girl named Simone as she searches for her own place in the world. She wants to find the perfect color to understand her heritage, a color that isn't brown or pink or black or white. Eventually, Simone creates a special word to describe the combination of her mom's dark and her dad's light skin colors: honeysmoke. Through simple text, this heartfelt and inspirational story empowers all children to forge their own unique identity.
Simone's skin is not black like her mother or white like her father, so she invents her own color word.
