Read full description of the books Powder Necklace:I wrote this so I'm biased! But I'll tell you why I love this book:
*It tells the story of a heroine I'm so proud of -- a sharp, honest young girl making the turbulent journey of adolescence across three continents
*It offers a new perspective on important issues that need fresh examination including:
o the superiority complex Westerners have regarding the so-called
o the effect of single parenthood on girl children in particular
o what it means to grow up American/British/etc when your parents
are trying to raise you as a good African/Jamaican/Trinidadian/etc
*It was written over 6 years of immense professional & spiritual change in my life
*It's my first novel -- my baby!
