A young mixed-race girl named Remy, encounters that intrusive question, “What are you?” during her first day at a new school, which sends her on a journey towards self-acceptance. Feeling confused about where she belongs, Remy learns about ethnicity and what it means to be mixed by doing her favorite activity with her mother: baking. When she then returns to school, Remy shares the importance and deliciousness of celebrating different backgrounds with all of her classmates.

NOTE: Remy is a mix of Mexican, Polish, African, and Indigenous American.
