If I Tell

I thought the story was good. I feel I could relate to it because it depicts different trials we go through in life whether it be racism, mental disorders, family issues etc. We all know someone who has gone through something and I think it was well written. Jaz lives in a town where biracial is not the norm and she has a hard time dealing with that. She also has to decide whether what she knows is worth telling or worth keeping a secret. But as time goes on and things happen, she finds it harder and harder.
