Good read. Pulls you into the characters emotions and experiences. Does a good job of showing how racism (intentional or not) affects a person. Good twist at the end. We are all beautiful and highly valuable. This book shows how the human spirit can rise above circumstances and become all God intended. -Amazon Review
This book is for all those people – especially young girls who have been belittled and made fun of, just based on their skin color. Diversity is beautiful, and every skin-color matters – be it black, olive, brown, or white.
Natashia learns to be content in her own skin, with time and a few lessons on the way. Yes, she may be darker-skinned than her mother and the rest of the residents at the island. Yes, she may also be darker-skinned than her lighter-skinned father and the rest of the kids at school… but she is her own person – whatever her skin-color.
