it was ok
bookshelves: 11th-grade

Maleeka, the protagonist of The Skin I'm In, struggles to endure the racial discrimination the people of her school (even the fellow black kids) put her through, just because of the (really) dark color of her skin.
One naturally feels pity for Maleeka since, inside, she's a good person. None of the other characters even halt for a second in order to attempt to realize this. This book showed me how ignorant the immature are. And to think, adults also harbor this trait, which appalls me on how America is turning to be.
