Ages 12 And Up, Grades 7 And Up

A young adult adaptation of the Oprah Book Club selection and New York Times bestselling nonfiction work by a Pulitzer Prize–winning author. This revealing and timely look at the unspoken hierarchies that divide us across lines of race and class will speak to young people, who are engaged more than ever with the world around them, or anyone who is believes in a more just existence for all.

Readers will be fascinated by this young adult adaptation of the New York Times bestselling nonfiction work as they follow masterful narratives about real people that reveal an insidious phenomenon in the United States: a hidden caste system. Caste is not only about race or class; it is about power—which groups have it and which do not. Isabel Wilkerson explores historical social hierarchies, including those in India and Nazi Germany, and explains how perpetuating these rankings dehumanizes vast sections of society. Once we learn the reasons behind caste and see the often heartbreaking effects, Wilkerson says, we can bridge the divides and make way for an inclusive future where we are all equal.
