Ms. Flake, I truly enjoyed reading this book. I am a 6th grade teacher ( in an urban area) and feel that the "Skin Im In" is a book that I can relate to and also my students. I have also ordered copies for a group of young ladies that I mentor and we use it to discuss issues about self esteem. Please continue to write more books for our youth, so they can feel connected to the world and to build literacy skills. Thank you

Dear Miz Flake, I loved both your books about that girl Raspberry Hill, I also liked the fact that you center the story about girls living in the ghetto, but dont talk about bad you talk about the good. just wondering are you making another book about Raspberry, and is her dad white

That book the skin i'm in was so good,
my favorite part was when Maleeka was in the beauty salon and she got her hair cut and flaunting her new hairstyle, I also like how she made up the diary of Akeela thats hat was creative.
I also read Begging for change, and I relized that those two books had to with skin color. Like Maleeka had problems with being dark skinned and Ling was Korean and black, so i'm wonder if Sharon dealt with those problems as a child.. I'm Black and Peutro rican and i've never had problems with it. but my favorite part was when Raspberry and her mom had that party and her and Sato kissed
