About the Book
Angela is in her senior year at an exclusive high school, where she stands out. She’s popular, has all the right friends, the star-athlete boyfriend, and a spot on the prom committee. But her life changes forever when she reconnects with Kaitlyn May, a friend from middle school whose skin is marred by scars. As Angela wrestles with her guilt in her own role in creating those she’ll have to choose between two lives: the one she has credited as a popular girl, or her true self.
Richard’s Burden is a journey of enlightenment for a high school girl as she struggles to be accepted in her school as a person of color in an antebellum-esque environment. It combines true personal experiences and those of fiction to reflect issues that are prevalent in today’s society for many, yet not openly discussed.
