Narrated by the author. Stephen is biracial (dad is Black, mom is white) and is beginning to notice how differently he is treated by strangers, especially when with his white friends. He is harassed by his best friend's cousin Chad. His father begins schooling him on Black Lives Matter and police shootings while his mother would rather maintain Stephen's innocence a little while longer. This nicely reflects the realities that young readers of color of a certain age are starting to grapple with. Stephen and his white best friend Dan serve as the middle points of view: Stephen experiences discrimination and learns from his black friends, while Dan is the opposite of Chad but still learning to be woke. The lane metaphor gets played out after awhile and the tone feels overly self-conscious but the meaning won't be lost on the target audience. ( )

What Lane is a story for every middle school library! Stephen has a black father and white mother. Mom insists he is mixed, but society looks at him as a black male. Throughout his childhood he did not notice anyone looking at him or treating him differently. Now as a 6th grader, he notices he is treated differently from his white friend, Dan. When sampling products, Stephen is called out, while Dan is left to chomp his treat.

Stephen feels he must stick to one lane, but that is not how he wants to live his life. His black friends and white friends should be able to hang together. Some want to remain blind to the issue, rather than work towards change.

Do we really want children to choose a lane or live, play, work, and live in harmony together? Torrey Maldonado opens your eyes to the inequalities and the divide created by the world. I agree with Stephen-we should not be stuck in one lane! Perhaps we could all “swerve into lanes” with heart! ( )

What Lane? by Torrey Maldonado helps show how to handle life when others step into your lane or expect you to travel in their lane.

Stephen and Dan have been friends forever. Now that Stephen is older, people see him differently. Instead of seeing a cute kids, they see a black kid. Never mind that he's "mixed" as his mother says, implying that fact makes him less inclined to be subjected to racism. Stephen's neighborhood is generally white and he's never really thoughts about being treated differently. He begins to notice that people look at him with distrust. Dan can also get away with more behaviors than Stephen can because he's white. Stephen uses these instances to demonstrate to Dan that people are not all treated the same.

Stephen wears a bracelet that becomes the metaphor for the novel: What Lane? He begins to see that people suggest or bully others into doing things they wouldn't do themselves; in other words, playing in someone else's lane instead of staying in your own. The bully/racist is Dan's cousin who has recently moved to town. Chad treats Stephen with disdain, claiming he's just kidding. He's always challenging people to do things that they shouldn't do. He can't always do these challenges himself, and he runs when confronted with someone like himself who treats him badly. It takes Dan a while to see the true Chad, but Stephen and his black friends see the true Chad immediately.

The characters represent, what I would hope, is a typical group of friends from a school. Stephen successfully navigates friends from all races and nationalities because they see each other as friends where it's who the person is as a person that counts. Stephen understands that when he's with his black friends, they understand that you have to act differently. He also enjoys his other friends because they are friends.

Eventually, there is a discussion of the injustices that have been done to young black men by white cops. The reason I like the book is that this isn't a book about anger or retaliation. It's a book about truth. They discuss facts and present them to people in his class who can't see it because they don't live it. Whether these kids believe or don't believe also means that you don't blame them or get angry with them. Maybe in time, they will see the truth. Also, it discusses how to deal with people like Chad whose racism is hidden behind "kidding." The end shows that changing lanes doesn't solve the problem. Letting people see the truth is one of the steps in maybe helping all people stay peaceful and accepting of all people. ( )
