    2. Just as amazing as "When Kambia Elaine Flew In From Neptune." And i'm not just saying that because we have the same first name lol. This book is an eye popper. Please read it, it will benefit you more than you can imagine.

    3. So I made the mistake of starting to read this book before it's companion novel, When Kambia Elaine Flew in from Neptune which was stupid of me. So after I finished that book I read this book. I really like this book a lot. Throughout the book, Shayla has to make a lot of decisions and faces the harsh realities of adolescence(even if she is only about 12 or 13). The ending of this book disappointed me a little bit but I still love this book. I wish there was a sequel. :(

    4. Shayla’s Double Brown Baby Blues by Lori Aurelia Williams is a remarkable story that deserves more recognition. The story flows well and keeps the reader’s attention. The characters are plausible, and by the end, the reader may want to know more about what happens next in Shayla’s world. While this is not the typical book for every young adult, it has important messages in it about how to overcome difficult obstacles, and it is definitely worth reading.Full review at: My Blog
