    The reality of racism.

    Bifocal, one of the most unique, realistic fictional stories I¿ve read in a while, was written by Eric Walters and Deborah Ellis. I thought the plot was different, but in a good way. It was easy to read, yet hard to put down. <BR/>Most of the events that occur in the story happen at a middle school in a small town, in America. The main character Haroon is accused of being involved in a terrorist group. When the cops realized they can¿t take him in without evidence, they take his friend, who apparently they did have evidence against, instead of Haroon. When Haroon is returned to school he has to face discrimination from his fellow peers, because of the color of his skin. Haroon learns that no one would treat him normally, so he came up with two options: he¿d ignore it all, and wait until everything died down or follow his twin sister¿s footsteps and stand up for his citizenship. He soon meets Jay, an audacious, rising star in their school¿s football team. Jay knows he needs to help Haroon but can he get over the racial dividers in their school? The story switches off between Haroon¿s points of views to Jay¿s. It was not exactly easy or hard to read regarding the vocabulary. The author also includes references to Afghan heritage.<BR/>I recommend this book to anyone who is confused about racism or doesn¿t understand the reality of discrimination against different colors of skin. This book might even be swell to relate to.
