What You Don't Know (Kobo eBook)
AWARD-WINNING, HIGHLY ACCLAIMED AUTHOR: Higginbotham's previous book, Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness, was a White Raven 2019 Selection and named one of School Library Journal's Best Books of 2018. Higginbotham is also well-loved by schools and librarians alike, and has made numerous such stops on tour.
CRITICAL CONTEMPORARY THEMES OF DIVERSITY: Higginbotham addresses LGBTQ+ identity, the process of coming out, the intersection between race and queerness, and other aspects of social justice in her iconic straightforward but sensitive style.
AN UNDERREPRESENTED BOOK CATEGORY: While there is growing readership for books about LGTBQ+ families and the process of coming out, there are few, if any, books for children who are comfortable with their identity but are not yet ready to share it with the world. This book is for children who are not necessarily seeking acceptance so much as understanding.
