Meet a cross-section of black female teens from across the country and different economic levels. Thereâ€™s Latisha, whoâ€™s two older brothers are in a gang. Nicole from Vermont has a white mother and a black father and hates the term mulatto. No two girls from this book are alike, except in one aspect â€“ all have experienced racism in one form or another. Thatâ€™s what hurts when reading this slim volume â€“ we like to think that we are past all that, but these young women are telling us what itâ€™s like here and now. These are “voices” you will never forget.
