Sharon Flake

I’ve discovered yet another author that many of the young ladies enjoy reading: Sharon Flake. I picked up The Skin I’m In then Bang! I thought The Skin I’m In was so honest and raw that it really sticks out; I can see why it won the Coretta Scott King Award. My only problem is the abuse that goes on between friends– I wonder how much of that really goes on? The second book, Bang! was a little less influential. I thought it a bit far-fetched in places, but nonetheless inspiring. I could hurt the father at times, but what parent doesn’t want the best for their children?
