It's difficult enough to navigate early adolescence, but even more so when you have an identical twin. In "The Colours I Am," Amber Anntoinette Davis recounts the joys and heartaches of middle school and the challenge to forge her own identity. From an early age, Amber felt her teachers and friends treated her as though she and her sister, Diamond, were one and the same person. In sixth grade, Amber found a way to make people view her differently, but at a cost to her relationship with Diamond, her peers, and her own self-respect.
From the stress of switching schools to struggling academically and socially, Amber learned valuable life lessons about family, friendship, and forgiveness. This chronicle reveals the emotions, feelings, and soul of a bright and insightful young girl who realized at a tender age the importance of fully accepting herself.
