At such a low place in my life being a dark girl myself, this book has truly inspired me to look past my skin complexities and inspire to be so much more. Between a mixture of outside society and family pressures I had truly started thinking that dark skin was wrong and undesirable but this book gave me a sense of confidence and from now on I will instill within myself and my unborn child. Thank you
