LESLIE DUBOIS' "THE QUEEN BEE OF BRIDGETON" (A REVIEW)


I must say the Leslie DuBois is fast becoming one of my favorite authors.  Her ability with writing stories about teens that are riveting, inspiring, and in depth is simply amazing. This story is about an African American teen that has had to overcome so much in her life to gain her true place in the world only to see it almost destroyed by a group of girls with a jealous streak.  Unlike any other story of this kind that I have ever read, Leslie once again brings her characters to life and pulls the reader in placing them into the shoes of this young girl and making them realize just how hard it is to be a teenager.

I commend her on her writing skills and her seemingly effortless flow.  I will be sure to pick up more of her works in the near future.
