Tales of Life in the Suburbs Told by a Black Girl
Author Aleisha Larrell says her new book Black Girl in a White World is a story of her life growing up near Flint, Michigan.
[USPRwire, Fri Oct 18 2013] Author Aleisha Larrell says her new book Black Girl in a White World is a story of her life growing up near Flint, Michigan. Since she was one of very few black children attending the Swartz Creek Community School District, Larrell said she always wondered “where do I fit?”
She wasn’t necessarily treated differently than the other children, but she said people often made ignorant comments. Black Girl in a White World is a funny, easy-to-read book that many people can relate to, Larrell said. The pages are filled with real stories about a young woman’s life experiences as a black girl in suburban America.
Published by Halo Publishing International, ( http://www.halopublishing.com ) “Black Girl in a White World spotlights stereotypes people don’t even realize they show to the world,” said Publisher Lisa Umina.
Born Aleisha Larrell Oden on April 15, 1987, the author graduated from Swartz Creek High School in 2005. Her mother, Shirley Gentry-Oden, is retired. Larrell attended Michigan State University and earned a bachelor’s degree in Interpersonal Communications in 2009. While never really seeing herself as having a writing career, Larrell said that after college, she became dedicated to writing stories about her life and started blogging them. “I tell honest stories about life that people can relate to,” said the new author who now is open to writing additional books.
Presently, she is living in Chicago. She hopes that one day her book might lead her to an opportunity to meet talk show host Chelsea Handler, a comedian known for honest frankness.
