Description: Growing up in Philadelphia in 1975, 14-year-old Charmaine Upshaw is obsessed with justice. Unfortunately, she gets none of it in her life: not from her parents, who make her share a room with her tap-dancing brother Leo; not at school, where light-skinned, Barbie-doll-haired Dinah Coverdale steals all the boys attention and makes sure dark-skinned Charmaine knows it; and certainly not from Tracy John, her six-year-old cousin who taken over the family. When Charmaine is charged with babysitting her spoiled cousin after school, that the last straw somethings gotta give. And when Charmaine cracks, she starts to see the world in a whole new light. Can Charmaine learn to love herself, her mahogany skin, and her attention-starved little cousin. Sometimes when everything falls apart, putting it back together can help you see the truth. (160 pgs) Young Adult

Ashay says, This is a great story. And I like the part where Charmaine learns to love her beautiful black skin and begins to establish better relationships with others. Get this book for the classroom.
