& nbsp; Maleeka suffers every day from the taunts of the other kids in her class. If they're not getting at her about her homemade clothes or her good grades, it's about her dark, black skin. & nbsp; When a new teacher, whose face is blotched with a startling white patch, starts at their school, Maleeka can see there is bound to be trouble for her too. But the new teacher's attitude surprises Maleeka. Miss Saunders loves the skin she's in. Can Maleeka learn to do the same?

      My mom had got me this bool at our local library.The very first chapter was a story i could almost relate to.So I read the rest of the book.And every time we went to our school library i would check out this book.Sometime in my last month of school, our librarian got a donation from an parent and she was so generous to give me that copy.I've lost count how many times I've read this book already.So good.
