Camo Girl by Kekla Magoon
Ella's only friend at school is Z, the weird boy. They are both outcasts, her because of the two-toned skin on her face and Z because he lives in a fantasy world where everyone is a knight or lady. Ella is so used to being picked on that she can't believe it when Bailey shows up and seems to take an interest in her. Besides being good-looking, popular and a basketball star, Bailey is the only other African-American student in school. Ella is unsure what to make of Bailey's attention but she's excited about the possibility of finally having other friends. The only problem is that the more time she spends with Bailey, the more Z seems to be retreating even further into his world of fantasy.
