Minni and Keira King might not look like it, but they are sisters. Twin sisters. Minni is white, like their father, but Keira is black like their mother. When Minni and Keira go to visit their grandmother in the South, she sends them to participate in the beauty pageant that their mother was in when she was a girl. A beauty pageant for black girls. Minni will learn how her sister feels, how hard it is to be different.
I liked this book, and would recommend it to girls ages 10-13
