    Description

    A timely and powerful story about a teen girl from a poor neighborhood striving for success, from acclaimed author Renee Watson.

    Jade believes she must get out of her neighborhood if she's ever going to succeed. Her mother says she has to take every opportunity. She has. She accepted a scholarship to a mostly-white private school and even Saturday morning test prep opportunities. But some opportunities feel more demeaning than helpful. Like an invitation to join Women to Women, a mentorship program for "at-risk" girls. Except really, it's for black girls. From "bad" neighborhoods.

    But Jade doesn't need support. And just because her mentor is black doesn't mean she understands Jade. And maybe there are some things Jade could show these successful women about the real world and finding ways to make a real difference.

    Friendships, race, privilege, identity - this compelling and thoughtful story explores the issues young women face.

    Should be Required Reading

    Couldn't put down this engaging work by Renee Watson about being black, being a teenager, being a girl. The author does a fine job narrating her own work. As a "gramma" aged listener living in the Portland, Oregon area, I found this work both thought provoking and entertaining.

    A Very Soothing Voice

    I really liked this book. It is has so much to analyze; especially when it comes to the topic of intersectionality involving privileges and oppressions. The speaker's voice fit the part of the main character. It was a very good book.

    loved the book but...

    loved it but I think it should have had a different narrator...it was simply read where I think a performance would have given it more depth

    A new classic!! Wish I had more stars!

    I loved every minute of it especially the way the author reads it!! This book should be required reading in schools as it covers so many issues of the times while being a great story. As a post 50 year old I not only enjoyed this but learned many different life lessons and points of view. Great read for any high schooler especially girls of any color. You won't be disappointed!!

    Compelling, Beautiful Story

    Loved this book. I learned a great deal from the young protagonist as she, herself, learned and grew, teaching those around her with her insights, bravery, developing strength and grace. Beautifully written; a very talented author.

    All middle school girls should read this book

    As great as book The Skin I’m In By Sharon Draper . A feel good book that will encourage all African American girls to continue to strive for excellence.

    Glimpse into our and colored lives

    I think this story works not only for blacks but for all poor. I do have a black granddaughter who is growing up in a home without luxury.. No extra money even for her needs. This story could serve as a discussion point for her and her single mom.

    Enjoyed this book!

    I bought this book because of Audible Daily Deal so I really wasn't expecting a lot, I was surprised when this book turned out to be a gem and the narration is really good. The characters were likeable, story held my interest and the ending was satisfying. I am looking forward to reading more books from this author.
