Just Like Me By Vanessa Brantley-Newton

Back of Book:
a collection of poetry filled with engaging mini-stories about girls of all kinds: girls who feel happy, sad, scared, powerful; girls who love their bodies and girls who don’t; country girls, city girls; girls who love their mother and girls who wish they had a father. With bright portraits in Vanessa’s signature style of vibrant colors and unique patterns and fabrics, this book invites readers to find themselves and each other within its pages.
My Review:
Being a girl can be exciting, complex, emotional, and a million other things. Vanessa Brantley-Newton used poetry to capture the essence of young womanhood in a creative and stunning way form. “Just Like Me” allows girls to see themselves and their various interests, thoughts, and feelings. Each poem focuses on a different subject. Some poems are fun and playful, while others have a more meaningful tone. The illustrations are done in a collage style with a range of bright and warm colors. I loved the diverse images that Vanessa splashed across each page. This is a lovely story that all young girls should have in their library.
