Recommended Book for Young Black Girls

wpid-9781423132516_p0_v2_s260x420.jpgThe Skin I’m In, written by Sharon G. Flake was published in 1998. It tells the story of a young Black girl with skin darker than many of her peers. It shows her struggle with her darker skin and how she overcomes this struggle.

This book changed my life back in middle school when I was dealing with bullying from my peers. It’s also the very first book I ever read.

If you are a young Black girl who feels her skin isn’t beautiful, then this book is for you.
