Fifteen-year-old Melinda is looking forward to two idyllic months of garden parties, socials and long talks into the night with her cousins Rebecca and Kate. But when a stranger comes to the village and invites Rebecca to go to Boston to develop her artistic talent, the cousins are suddenly exposed to the possibilities of the outside world and the chance to fulfil their latent dreams.
Lesson plan based on "I Like Who I Am" by Tara While. Created by WITS as encouragement to Walk Away, Ignore and Seek Help (or Look and Listen, Act, Seek help) but also explores being proud to be Mohawk and what it means beyond physical appearances.
In this brilliant story of transformation, a young girl learns to believe in her mind and in her heart. The Secret Under My Skin is one of the most remarkable YA novels to appear in recent memory. Winner of the Ruth Schwartz award.
