Beauty is defined as a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight. For over 400 years, girls of African descent have endured degradation of their features resulting in poor self-esteem, which can impact their lives.   

Lucky is a book dedicated to celebrating the beauty in African girls and to promoting their positive self-image. Parents and educators of all races, ethnicities, and cultures are encouraged to read Lucky with their girls and engage in a discussion afterwards on the true definition of beauty as it relates to ALL girls, especially those of African descent.
