About the Book

Ariel's profound and authentic memoir, Biracial Blues, demonstrates the pain and confusion society imposes on anyone who doesn't fit a "look." She takes readers through the process of healing from emotional trauma as a biracial child.

Born in the early 90s, Ariel was born to a Puerto Rican mother and knew nothing of her father-save that he was Black and his name was Gregory. In her community, being biracial was uncommon. Standing out in this respect led to a childhood battle of isolation, stereotypes, and racism.

Ariel didn't allow others' hate to defeat her. She journeyed through several difficult stages of life to become the confident, self-loving woman she is today.

To help others in similar situations, she shares her method of healing.

Through this book, into which Ariel has poured her heart and soul, readers will relive Ariel's childhood through the five stages of grief:

  • Denial. Walk with Ariel on the playground, hear her classmates berate her, and feel the complex mix of emotions Ariel felt as she wondered where she fit in.
  • Anger. Feel Ariel's frustration at being mixed and how styling her hair became a contentious point of prejudice and acceptance.
  • Bargaining. Experience the pivotal shifts Ariel had in her 20s and what she decided to do.
  • Depression. Discover how a co-worker's comment triggers Ariel's childhood trauma and sinks her into depression that her son Kaiden pulls her out of.
  • Acceptance. Experience peace of mind as Ariel learns more about where she comes from and falls in love with her heritage.

Perfect for parents and children 12 and up, Ariel's book combines relatable personal stories with the hope of learning to love yourself no matter the prejudice you face.
