    Paperback Description:

    Angie and Michelle are best friends, facing the very real problems of growing up in a tough inner-city neighborhood where it’s sometimes not considered "cool," or even safe, to be smart or to have kinky hair and dark skin. That is until 90-year-old Cousin Seatta comes to visit and teaches Angie and Michelle about the shimmershine feeling, that good feeling and pride which people have for their racial heritage and physical features.
