Brenda Vicars

Author Brenda Vicarsabout this book: On the surface, the story of Polarity Weeks is a mystery that shows what can happen when cyberbullying goes too far. But underneath the surface, the story is about a white girl who, in the beginning, has no idea what white privilege is. As she unravels the mystery of the sext that is circulating, she meets and falls in love with a black guy, Ethan. Her journey smacks her against the invisible structures of race and opens her eyes to her own privileges.

Guilt led me to write this book. And the need to use art to explore and understand the fiber of racism.

The title includes the name of the main character, Polarity. Polarity got her name in an unusual way. Her mother, a borderline personality disorder sufferer, wanted to be sure that she never judged her daughter as totally good or evil. Mom chose the name "Polarity" to be a constant reminder that a person spans the continuum of flawed and perfected--never being totally at one end or the other. As a borderline sufferer, Mom wanted to be sure that she didn't get trapped into worshipping or hating her daughter.

KIRKUS REVIEW: "A dazzling, richly textured YA debut."
