Overview

Sometimes, loving yourself, and loving who you are is not easy. You are more valuable than all the diamonds and gold put together. Take a look in the mirror now, yes now. Look at you, WOW, you are lovely, you are beautiful; love yourself. Destini -- though innocent and beautiful, has a lot to learn. She learned one thing though, that children and people can be cruel. That a person with low self-esteem feels powerful by bullying and controlling others.

Destini the Chocolate Princess is an amazing life changing story about an innocent child who was treated unfairly in her first moments born into the world. This was demonstrated even by her mother.

Her mother Mary, was very disappointed by the appearance of her first child. She vented the undesirable in her heart, to the effect of changing the name of the baby from previous name chosen, to Destini.

As Destini grew older, she was mocked by her peers, bullied in school. Even adults said insinuating remarks, telling her to her face that she was ugly because of her skin, hair, weight and lips.

She finally met a handsome young man, Stephan Barronton, who found her beautiful. He fell in love with her. However, his family, mainly his mother, a West Indian, hated her.

This caused much trouble for Destini, being African American. Sophia did everything in her powers to keep them apart. Even to the point of putting Destini’s life in danger.

See how this thought provoking drama works its way out.

This is an incredibly moving and captivating novel, and it has something for everyone: romance, high school drama, alienation, family values, faith, and important social themes. As a 6th grade teacher, this book is perfect for the pre-teen/ young adult audience, and it is one of the most popular books at my school. Chocolate Princess is a fantastic read, and I can't recommend it highly enough!

I love this book. It made me laugh and cry. I stayed up late trying to read as much as I could. It was hard to put it down. I wish I could find more books that reads like this. Love Stephan! Would like to meet someone like him. This book shows that when you have someone in your life that cares about you (Destini's adoptive parents), it makes all the difference in the world.
