Destini the Chocolate Princess
Joan Wright Lewis

Destini -- though innocent and beautiful, has a lot
to learn. She learned that children and people
can be cruel. She also learned that bullies feel
powerful when they are picking on others,
because they usually have low self-esteem.

A powerful and mesmerizing novel, the author
has captured the essence of what it means to
have courage, when it seems like everything is
against you.  "She affixes depth to each character
with vividness."

Destini is intelligent, feminine, and caring. She
faces evil challenges.  Her life is disrupted by
Stephan’s mother, who plots to destroy Destini.
This intriguing novel captures the imagination,
stirs the conscience and provokes the thoughts.
