*/ var click Promo Link = function(should Show Popover) ; /* ELIGIBLE PROMOTION CHECKS check For Promos And Render This is a series of 2 nested ajax calls.

Why also throw in sometimes fraught conversations about race between Rose, who is white, and her boyfriend Caleb, who’s black? That’s true for more and more teens all over the country, too.

But even if it’s unintentional, I worry about the implication that a book that isn’t, at its core, “about race” can’t feature racially diverse characters whose racial identities affect their perspectives—and who sometimes talk about race.
