From award winning author Jeanne Betancourt the 1st in a series telling the story of 3 girls who meet at a photo workshop in NYC and learn a lot about who they are - and what real friendship is.

NYC, 2002. Three13 year-old girls meet at a summer photo class: Carolyn, fresh from Wyoming, motherless and scared; Joy, who has everything plus a bad attitude, and Maya from Harlem, strong, proud and surprised to find herself liking these 2 mismatched girls. Just as these 3 discover they're friends despite their differences, Carolyn's father decides to send her back 'home' to Wyoming. Then, in her first flush of street-smart confidence, Carolyn gets scarily lost on the subway - and it's Joy and Maya who find her - and show her dad that New York City is the home they've been looking for.

I think it's so interesting to learn about each of the three girls. 'Self-Portrait' is such a fun and unpredictable book. One of the best books I've read in a long time.

I just finished up this book. I have to say, it is very interesting! I love how everyone is so different! It's amazing how true to life it is- that people don't always get along at first.

I think this book is a really funny/realistic book to read for not only new yorkers but for other girls from different states to read. Its interesting looking at the 3 girels points of view back and forth. Maya-the black hiphopper, Joy-the sarcastic rich girl, Carolyn-the out of state, over protected one...all of them are cool gurls!!!!
