A book I read last year,and it really taught me to be happy with myself. I was so surprised at how the characters changed throughout the book,and really saw a new light shed upon their skin color. i didn't realize that people may actually feel insecure with their skin color,even after the civil rights movement.

I read this book as a child and felt that Eleanora E. Tate was killing me softly with her song. She exposed me and for that I am grateful. This book was apart of raising my self-awareness as a child.
