Just Like Me ~ by Vanessa Brantley Newton
I am a canvas
Being painted on
By the words of my family
From Vanessa Brantley-Newton, the author of Grandma''s Purse, comes a collection of poetry filled with engaging mini-stories about girls of all kinds: girls who feel happy, sad, scared, powerful; girls who love their bodies and girls who don''t; country girls, city girls; girls who love their mother and girls who wish they had a father. With bright portraits in Vanessa''s signature style of vibrant colors and unique patterns and fabrics, this book invites readers to find themselves and each other within its pages.
