Publisher Comments:

With raw candor, elicited by Rebecca Carroll's perceptive questioning, 15 black women between the ages of 11 and 18, from places as diverse as Brooklyn and Seattle, Alabama and Vermont, speak out about their inner and outer lives. What they say about identity, self-esteem, the role of race in their perceptions and treatment, personal values, and their hopes for the future is both enlightening and moving. 144 pp. National pubilcity. 15,000 print.

This is the only book that I've ever read which I truly could not stand. Yes, it was supposedly honest - but the things that were said in this book would not be stood if said by the same people with a different skin color. It made me sad to see read it, and I don't view it as an adequate portrayal of the thoughts of young African-American girls.
