Summary

Confessions of a Token Black Girl is a snappy comedic tale framing Danielle's first-hand experiences in Wisconsin and other places as the perpetual 'token black girl,' fraught with dark moments and hate crimes. It's a coming-of-age-story but instead of finding herself during a road trip, Danielle found herself through the effects of racism. This book humorously chronicles Danielle's quest for understanding what black identity means to her - instead of what it means to everyone else.

She nailed it

Light hearted, but to the point. She nailed it. What it is to be the token non-stereotypical black girl. The narrator was perfect!

Wow. My first full review of anything.

I've never read a book before that felt so much like it was written for me and my life. It was real, funny, and more relatable than any thing I can think of. Thank you, Danielle.

Frank, Hilarious, on point

Loved the conversational tone. The sass and wit were just in the right places. The only criticism I have is that I wished it were longer!

Outstanding!

I loved everything about this book from how personal, candid and most of all relatable it was. As a African-American man I identified with it,and I appreciated how honest the writer was about being a Black woman of Jamaican ancestry and how that brought specific experiences and perspective to the common enemy of racism in America.
The reader was connected and calming, but strong in her execution of the experiences of the writer. I almost thought the author was reading the book. This is a must read/listen and I’m going to suggest it to my wife. Thank you for sharing this Danielle and Lisa.

Insightful, Intelligent and Unparallel Take on Racism

Danielle Small did a superb job showcasing and verbalizing all the thought of most "time. Black girls" like myself. She put in to great sarcastic prospective just how ridiculous the phrase and unwanted role is to us women who are brilliant, bright and unique. Kudos!

Inappropriate comments about Taylor Swift

The author made inappropriate and uncalled for comments about Taylor Swift being talentless and called her derogatory names.

Tell it like it is!

I loved this book. I wanted to hear more. It could easily have been expanded into a much longer story.
