The Blossoming Universe of Violet Diamond by Brenda Woods

Violet is a smart, funny, brown-eyed, brown-haired girl in a family of blondes. Her mom is white, and her dad, who died before she was born, was black. She attends a mostly white school where she sometimes feels like a brown leaf on a pile of snow. Now that Violet's eleven, she decides it's time to learn about her African American heritage. Despite getting off to a rocky start trying to reclaim her dad's side of the family, she feels her confidence grow as the pieces of her life start coming together.
