    1. We need more books like this. This book is such a treasure filled with essays and poems by teenage girls of color. I encourage all adults who work with teens of color to read this book. I just wish a book like this had been around when I was a teenager.

    2. My sister's voice is a nonfiction book, this book is a series of multiple collections of writings the book is 245 pages long and has a mixture of both easily worded and also challenging some. To guide the reader's about the Author, they must know the Author sharing the personal issues she faced and struggles of women of color. This book is similar to other books in the same genre because other books talk about the same issues but this book is different in a unique way, this book share stories wr [...]

    3. I was a bit torn with rating this collection. I think in reality I would give it a 4.6 ish. The collection of submissions was great and covered a broad range of issues that girls of color face daily. The author also did a good job of addressing the gaps of issues/experiences not represented in the text. Some of the stories and poems were simply heartbreaking to say the least, but I’m so glad these girls had a space to speak out and connect with other girls via writing. The only thing I really [...]

    4. When I was told to write anything I wanted for a chance to have it entered in a book, I never dreamed that I would be chosen. Many years later and this book is still influencing people who are my age at the time that I submitted my work. I wish that a book like this had come my way back then. I'm glad it is still making an impact.

    5. I give this book of poems and essays 4.5 out of 5 stars. Excellent resource. I do wish that it covered just a few more topics; however, the topics that are covered make this an important book for young women of color. I just wish there had been something like this available when I was a teenager.

    6. I picked this up for my multiracial granddaughter when she started high school. It's a rehash of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, though a little less creative.
