Who Am I Without Him?: Short Stories about Girls and the Boys in Their Lives (Hardcover)

A powerful, provocative short story collection about teens in love, from award-winning author Sharon G. Flake.

There is "The Ugly One," whose only solace comes when she is locked inside her own head. In "Wanted: A Thug," a teenager seeks advice on how to steal her best friend's bad-guy boyfriend. And then there's Erika, who only likes white boys.​

Sharon Flake takes readers through the minds of girls trying to define themselves while struggling to remain relevant to the boys in their lives. This is a complex, often humorous, always on-point exposition of black youth resolving to find self-worth... any way they know how.

A Coretta Scott King Honor-winning author offers a complex, always on-point exposition of black youth resolving to find self-worth.
