The book had a great storyline and meanings to life. However, I didn't like the way the story was presented. Though good points were given, at times throughout the story, I felt the story was repetitive and going in circles. Though the book has potential, I wanted to know how it ended with the father, their relationship, and about one unidentified character but, sadly, I was left hanging. Therefore, this book left me torn.

I thought the book was pretty good with the exception of a few spelling errors(i.e the use of the word "glazed" instead of "gazed".I did like how the author correlated a box of crayons and its colors to life.The flow of the storyline was smooth and didn't jump all over the place. I do wish Jazzmyne's mother had more of a role in the book. The quotes in the beginning of each chapter caught my eye as well.I felt that they were indicators of what was coming next. The only thing I would suggest is a proofreader to avoid spelling errors,etc. zandra d. barnes AAMBC Reviewer

The future blossoms from the roots of the past. Music stirs the soul and moves you in many directions but Jazz comes from the deepest part of the soul. No one knows this better then Naya Moná, Jazz not only came from her soul but it also saved it. Naya's childhood was brought to an end by the man who was to protect and raise her. With that and the knowledge of a dark secret she leaves. She runs for the nearest bus station for an unknown destination. That destination is soon discovered when her feet hit the New York asphalt. With only the clothes on her back, some money in her pocket and the gift of song in her core, she sets off to make her own way. The Skinny is the launching part of Naya's singing career and the backdrop to many of her life lessons that will leave her anger, sad, heartbroken and wise. Going by her stage name, Jazzmyne, she grows in fame and fortune the roots of her past call her back - for to gain true happiness and peace she must conquer the things in her past. One of which is reconnecting with her long lost son. Her longing to know her son brings both pleasure and pain as we see the multiple colors in Jazzmyne's box of crayons. Each color is a moment, emotion, or experience that makes her the person she is but she will need to expose all of them to find her true peace and the family she never had. Can she relive her past to have a future with her son? Will the past rule the life of Naya or will she find a new shade to "Color Me Jazzmyne?"
