    Book Description:
    In the tradition of the bestselling Ophelia Speaks, a collection of provocative essays by teenage girls of colorMy Sisters’ Voices is a passionate and poignant collection of writings from teenage girls of African American, Hispanic, Asian American, Native American, and biracial backgrounds. With candor and grace, they speak out on topics that are relevant not only to themselves and their peers but to anyone who is raising, teaching, or nurturing young women of color. As adolescents, women, and minorities, these young authors represent a demographic that has had no voice of its own, a group often spoken for but rarely given the opportunity to be heard. Now these young women have a chance to stand up and be counted, to present their own unique perspectives in fresh and astonishing ways. Here you’ll find a Native American girl writing about the bumps in her relationship with her best friend, who’s white; a Korean American girl who wishes she could help her mother understand that it’s okay to socialize with boys as well as girls; and a biracial girl who feels she must be the designated spokesperson for blacks when she’s around whites, for whites when she’s around blacks, and for biracial people around everyone. These personal and inspiring stories about family, friendship, sex, love, poverty, loss, and oppression make My Sisters’ Voices essential reading for young women of all backgrounds.
