The thought of a young Black female hating herself because of what people said to her, making her feel ugly and then to have friends which told her that she was beautiful but at the same time. They should of stood their grounds and told everyone who was nasty to her, to go about their business!
Its funny coz in life we all know people like this whether they be family, friends or just someone you know casually...but we are all beautiful!
this book was very interesting and insightful all the way through. the author went into just enough detail to keeep the book " safe " and not drown you in uneeded information which would eventually escalate into boredom. i really enjoyed black and ugly to say the least, infact i loved it and i'd recommend it to anyone who is into african american literature/ urban fiction; however i do worn you that the title is a tiny bit contradicting to the story.
