The Skin I’m In is a realistic fiction novel written by Sharon G. Flake. It depicts the story of seventh grader Maleeka Madison who has low self-esteem because of her dark skin color. Thirteen-year-old Maleeka Madison is tall, skinny, and dark-skinned. That’s a problem for her, because it’s for some reason such a problem for everyone else at school, it seems. To combat the taunting, Maleeka befriends the toughest girl in school. Only bullies force you to pay more than you’d like, so life for Maleeka just gets harder, until she learns to stand up for herself and love the skin she’s in.
This story is great to embrace the beauty we all have no matter our complexion or size because there is always someone who will make one feel negative about a feature of themselves. This book develops one to have self-love for it is the important factor of accepting our beauty no matter what others may think.
