Book: The Skin I'm In by Sharon G. Flake

Maleeka, the narrator of The Skin I'm In, is blacker than most of her classmates in seventh grade. She gets frustrated at being teased for her skin colour, that's like "a blue-black sky after it's rained and rained", by pupils who are also black--just a little bit less so. When Miss Saunders joins the school to teach as an experiment, on loan from an advertising agency, it is not just her posh clothes that make people talk but also her down-to-earth-attitude and her unusual face.
