Illustration Friday - Deja Vu

Yes, this really is a deja vu,  a story I wrote a looong time ago. I recently rewrote it, changed the ethnicity of the characters to make it less Eurocentric, cut about 200 words, generally whipped this baby into shape. I KNOW it is a much better story now. ...getting ready to send it out into the world... again.
Wish us luck!
PS "One of a Kind Ayana!", about a mixed-race girl who has to make a 'heritage doll' for a school project, and how she comes to terms with her complicated ancestry.  The illustration is her 'nightmare' , when Ayana is overwhelmed by it all.

  2. Cool. This very week the topic for several twitter lit chats is "diversity" in literature. I was following #kidlitchat on that theme when I noticed your post.
