About the Author
Much like Samantha, Natalie Kinard was a country girl who moved to the big city. As an adult, Kinard now has four children of her own and teaches them how to love themselves and be proud of who they are. As a teacher for a few years, she also taught this valuable lesson to her students, many of them fearing they were not “normal” enough. But Kinard took the time to sit and discuss with each student of the beauty in their differences.
