Desiree Moore is not your average, 5-year old, African-American girl. She wants to become a Doctor of Philosophy, A.S.A.P., but racism, sexism, ageism, double standards, etcetera are blocking her success. Will Desiree reach her goal or will she have to forego her dream forever??? This book, based on the author's true story, is a must read for anyone, particularly African-Americans, who want more out of life than the status quo!!!
