My skin starts to crawl before she even opens her mouth. Maleeka, your skin is pretty. I stash them in the locker and change into them before first period. I’m like Superman when I get Charlese’s clothes on. I got a new attitude, and my teachers sure don’t like it none. Like a blue-black sky after it’s rained and rained,″ she says. It’s bad enough that I’m the darkest, worse-dressed thing in school. I’m also the tallest, skinniest thing you ever seen. And people like John-John remind me of it every chance they get. They don’t say nothing about the fact that I’m a math whiz, and can outdo ninth graders when it comes to figuring numbers.

Maleeka suffers every day from the taunts of the other kids in her class. If they're not getting at her about her embarrassing home-made clothes or her good grades at school, it's about her dark, black skin - a deeper shade than any of theirs. 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 too? A deeply involving novel that will draw readers into Maleeka's world and let them see it through her eyes.
A very good book. My daughter couldn't put it down. It's one of her favorite books now. She was even taking notes while reading it. It's about a girl in school that gets bullied a lot and a teacher makes a difference in the child's life, teaching her to accept herself for how she is. At the end the young girl gets the courage to confront her bully and she learns to accept herself.
I feel like 'wow' is the only word to explain this. At first I wasn't sure it would be a good novel, because it was a required read for school, but then I fell in love. This book talks about so many different issues that are still really current in today's time period. It has something that everyone can relate to. It faces things like: growing up, finding self confidence, standing up for what is right, along with problems of bullying, racial profiling, and disrespecting teachers and other people that just want to help you. I personally feel that everyone should read this book because it's not only entertaining, but a way to get kids more aware.
I teach 6th grade at an At Risk school. The majority of my students hate to read and struggle with finding books that engage them. I've only read the first chapter of this book to each of my reading classes and they are SO into it! I'm very pleased and can't wait to finish it with them! I plan to read them more books by this author! :)
Many young readers -- including those who aren't all that crazy about reading -- will identify with the heroine of this book for young readers, who is the target of classroom bullies and desperate to find a way out of her dilemma. The plot is predictable but readers will find themselves rooting for Maleeka and cheering her on in her struggles.
Very dark and hopeful. I use this text with my sixth graders along with the "Slave Narratives" at the Library of Congress. Specifically, we read the narrative of "Mary Reynolds" (Vol. 16, Texas, Part 3) and compare the parallels between the stories to see what kind of conclusions we can draw.
Great read for young girls whether struggling with identity or being bullied or not--just a great read to hear up close and personal feelings. Also tells how difficult it is to choose to do the right thing due to peer pressure and wanting to be accepted--even by the wrong people.
My old elementary school teacher would read this story to our 4th grade class, I never forgot about it. I just had to buy it, it's wonderful. It tells the tale of a girl that's self-conscious, poor and is struggling to identify herself as an individual because she's not too comfortable with who she really is. She lashes out at the few people that do like her but eventually comes to value herself. I am a guy but I recommend this book to anyone with low self-esteem or to people that just simply like character transformation stories like I do. It's wonderfully brilliant.
I bought this book for my niece and she loved it! She has to do a reading book log every night for school and it's hard to get her interested in what she's reading. She totally enjoyed this book so much finished it in 4 days.????
