Unknown To Him

Akeelah Jackson is 16 and lives in California. She was adopted at birth by the Jacksons and lived a happy life until now.
This is an excerpt from the story.
* When I got in the kitchen mom was baking. She never bakes unless there is something on her mind."Mom, Who is she?" I said in a hushed voice. My mom slowly set down her pan and spatula. "Mom, Did you hear me? Who is she?!?" I said raising my voice a little more than I anticipated. She looked up at me, tears swelling in her eyes. "We need to talk." She whispered softly as if she could barely get it out.

1. Introduction

* Akeelah's POV

I'm Akeelah Muhree Jackson. I'm 16 years old and live in California. I've always been made fun of for being different. People always ask me if I'm Hispanic, mixed, or Asian but to tell you the truth I don't even know. I've always felt different, my family looks different, acts different and even talks different than me. I have slick, dark wavy hair, hazel eyes with a slight touch of green and a light olive skin tone. I even have this thick accent but I have no idea why because I was born and raised here in California.

What makes me different? Am I really who I think I am? Could it be... possible... was I adopted? Naw, I'm just a normal kid. Or so I thought.
