The Skin Im In was one of the best books ever. The reason why is that it teaches you how to love yourself for who you are. In the book there was this girl named Maleeka and she did not like the color of her skin. Everyday Maleeka would go to school and the kids would always laugh at her. The main person who did that was this boy called John. John was dark just like Maleeka but for some strange reason he made fun of her like everyday. Everyday Maleeka would go to the restroom just to smoke with her friends. Days went by and Maleeka was still not the cutest girl. Until one day this new teacher came to the school and she was looking worse than Maleeka. This teacher had a lot of money, she was also wearing gold and all the fancy things that you could think of. Maleeka and the teacher became really cool. The teacher started to see that Maleeka did not like herself and she was not happy with that. So what the teacher started to do was to help Malleka to like herself. One day Maleeka said "you know what I don't care what you guys say about me i love myself for who I am- I can't go around trying to please everybody.
