Being in kindergarten can be easy. But not for Caroline. She has to deal with an identity crisis, for even one mistake can cost you lunch. Why I Hid My Lunch, by Caroline Dinh, is an enjoyable flashback from the future reflecting on Caroline’s past.

I could relate to Caroline; I too have past experiences that involve identity crises with my race. I am Chinese and people have been stereotyping me for being very smart in the past. Whenever people saw that I didn't get a 100 on a test, they always teased me by saying, “Oh, no dinner for you!” and whatnot. Therefore, I thank you Caroline for creating this marvelous piece of writing. Hopefully, the lesson of the story will teach people to prevent racism and stereotyping that involve people’s race and/or culture.
