The Skin I'm In

£5.99 £7.99


A brave, beautifully told story of an Afro-American teen

dealing with colourism, racism and bullying - but given hope

by the power of an inspirational and kind teacher.

Maleeka suffers every

day from the taunts of the other kids in her class. If they're

not getting at her about her homemade clothes or her good

grades, it's about her dark, black skin.

When a new teacher, whose face is blotched with a startling white

patch, starts at their school, Maleeka can see there is bound

to be trouble for her too. But the new teacher's attitude surprises

Maleeka. Miss Saunders loves the skin she's in.

Can Maleeka learn to do the same?

Features a new introduction by New York Times bestselling

author Jason Reynolds.
