Apricot Brown Miss Undefinable Children's Book

The character in Apricot Brown: Miss Undefinable is based on the author's, Dana Drucker- Solano, own diverse background and experience growing up as a multi-ethnic woman herself. Dana believes that diversity is America's greatest strength and the world's brightest future!

The poetic story revolves around Apricot Brown's first day of school­ a day of reckoning for most kids when they are scrutinized and judged by their new peers.

But the title character dares the unthinkable: she declares her independence from homogeneous cliques and invites everyone to cross boundaries by "trying on" different cultures, racial identities and philosophies through a series of metamorphoses.
