My name is Lupe and there is no one quite like me.

My skin is brown. My hair is dark and curly. I look different from the other kids at school. What am I?


Lupe is a daughter. She is a big sister. She is a friend. She is smart. She is fearless. She is funny. She is beautiful. She is enough.

A warm-hearted story that inspires big and little readers to embrace the things that make them who they are.
