Everything from the way she looks to the way she speaks, and even the way she thinks is questioned, mocked or simply misunderstood. Thandies struggling to be confortable in her skin, but between her California girl dreams, ambivalent feelings about Black American culture, and sensitivity about the ethnic background she thinks makes her stand out too much, she doesnt seem to fit in anywhere. Thandies facing a real dilemma: How can you be true to yourself when youre trying to discover who you are?
