Have you ever experienced racism? Sometimes people would rather yank out their eyes instead of seeing the truth. They'll say things like racial discrimination doesn't exist, but that is simply not true. In this novel, Mae-Legacy, through her intelligence and pride, fights against intolerance. She opens the eyes of those around her when she steps on the neck of stereotype, suffocating it forever. This teenage girl is unapologetic about being black. And she shows those around her that African Americans are like midnight gold, valuable, priceless.
