              The book is about a girl named Zuri and her mom always styled her hair. And Zuri always loved her hair to be in any different style. When her mom went to the hospital Zuri could not style her hair because her mom always did it and now she can't. Once she found a hair style that she really liked and she asked her dad to do it but no matter how hard he tried he still could not do it. Then Zuri showed her dad a video how her mom did it for her so he followed the video and BAM! There it was an awesome hair style. Zuri and her dad went to go visit her mom and her mom was super proud. This made me realize to believe in myself and it will all work out. If you like sad story with happy ending than this book it for you.
