Writing children books has been a lifelong passion of hers and she was inspired to write this book after observing her daughter admire other pretty girls. Her daughter confided in her that she wasn’t pretty and that the other girls were better and prettier. With this being said, she reflected back on her own childhood and conversations with close friends that shared the same intimate thoughts. If this was her story and her daughters, it surely was someone else’s.
