Academy Award-winning actor Lupita Nyong'o beautifully presents her fictional story. Young Sulwe is the darkest member of her family. Listeners sympathize as she tries to erase her darkness and prays to God to make her skin fairer. Nyong'o's delivery of Sulwe's sweet, youthful voice and her mother's comforting tone are flawless. After Sulwe has a dream about dark and light sisters--Night and Day--she realizes that both are necessary and that what's inside a person is more important than skin color. Sound effects such as African drums and original music by Justin Ellington enrich the story. At the conclusion, a delightful group of youngsters reads the audiobook credits.
