About the Book "Freckles" can be fickle … you either love them or you hate them. As a child, I loathed my freckles because I was teased mercilessly about them. "Turkey Egg," the boys called me. "Turkey Egg!" I was in despair.

In this story, freckles became a metaphor for what we are born into, and how we choose the cope with difficult circumstances.

This story speaks to not only my specific experiences in a certain time and place, but to every girl´s experience in her struggle through adolescence into self understanding.
