Praise
"Each story has a strength and point of view different from the others. The result of all these stories together is more than the sum of their parts, but a call to both sexes to think and respect each other more. Fortunately, Flake's handling of her theme is not didactic and paternalistic, but shines with an awareness of the real-life social, emotional, and physical pressures that teens feel about dating."
"Flake is breaking new and necessary ground here, creating compelling, vibrant voices of black girls for black girls, with no implicit or explicit address to outsider culture."
From the Publisher
Annotation These 10 affecting--comical, distressing, often painfully authentic--short stories thoughtfully careen around the universe of young black women and the boys that both fascinate and infuriate them. While offering insights into the enormous range of emotions and experiences teenaged girls have, stories such as "So I Ain't No Good Girl," "The Ugly One," and "Wanted: A Thug" also create a context for girls to consider their own feelings of self-worth. A 2005 Coretta Scott King Author Honor Book.
Editors Note While Erika comes to realize that she only likes white boys, "The Ugly One" has to come to terms with her own self-worth, in a collection of short stories about girls dealing with their identities, their relationships, and their place in the world.
