This is a simple but eloquent story of a young inner city girl who is searching for "something beautiful." After seeing the word "DIE" written as graffitti on the door of her apartment building, she takes a journey through her neighborhood, encountering family and friends, in search of something beautiful, and in the end decides that her good intentions will create beauty in her life.

Reading this lovely story would be a wonderful way to generate a personal narrative on what young authors would consider to be beautiful in each of their lives.As each character in the story identifies "something beautiful," (like a smooth stone, a baby's laugh, or a fish sandwich)even primary aged children can begin to think about what is valuable and precious beyond the materialistic choices that they may make without such an altruistic model.
