In the book We Are Not Like Them, two friends, one White and one Black tell the story from their separate perspective when a tragic event involving the shooting of an unarmed Black teenager changes their lives forever. They must face the issue of race head on and talk about uncomfortable feelings and stereotypes around race.

Authors Christine Pride and Jo Piazza tell a powerful story and find that in order to tell this fictional but emotional and relevant story, they had to be open and honest about race with each other.
