Imposter Syndrome and Other Confessions of Alejandra Kim

February 21

A young girl with long dark hair has her hands on top of her head and her eyes rolled up like she is trying to see above herself. There are yellow shadows of tall buildings and a bridge behind her on the yellow-orange background of the cover. The title is at the top in black. Imposter Syndrome and Other Confessions of Alejandra Kim by Patricia Park
Crown Books for Young Readers

Alejandra Kim doesn’t feel like she belongs anywhere. At her wealthy Manhattan high school, her súper Spanish name and súper Korean face do not compute to her mostly white “woke” classmates and teachers. In her Jackson Heights neighborhood, she’s not Latinx enough. Even at home, Ale feels unwelcome. And things at home have only gotten worse since Papi’s body was discovered on the subway tracks.

Ale wants nothing more than to escape the city for the wide-open spaces of the prestigious Wyder University. But when a microaggression at school thrusts Ale into the spotlight—and into a discussion she didn’t ask for—Ale must discover what is means to carve out a space for yourself to belong. — Cover image and summary via Goodreads
