―Tunde Oyeneyin, New York Times bestselling author of Speak

"Through honest stories and inspiring lessons from her life, A'ja Wilson reminds us to never doubt who we are or apologize for being true to ourselves. Dear Black Girls is a must-read for every Black girl out there."
―Gabrielle Union, New York Times bestselling author of We're Going to Need More Wine and You Got Anything Stronger?

"After reading Dear Black Girls, I needed a moment to compose myself. Never has a book so perfectly captured my attention and made me feel so seen. I highly recommend this book!"
―Zaila Avant-garde, Winner of the Scripps National Spelling Bee, Two Times Guinness World Records Holder, and New York Times bestselling author

"Watching A'ja Wilson on the court is amazing, but to know her life story and all that she has overcome is witnessing poetry in motion. She epitomizes resilience, determination and courage. A'ja embodies the true spirit of what it means to be inspiring, always pushing herself and others to be the best version of themselves. It's a joy and an honor to see her book and know her story and how this will impact all women."
Dawn Staley, American basketball Hall of Fame player and coach

"The author's refusal to sugar coat the oppression that Black people feel is matched only by her faith in readers' abilities to best the centuries-old obstacles America continues to shove in their way. Wilson fills this joyful, profound, and tender book with a slew of stories... artfully narrated and perfectly pitched. Most impressive is her narrative voice, which is humorous, conversational, lyrical, and unique." Kirkus, starred review

"[Wilson] becomes a beacon of hope for all who face adversity. Her book is a powerful and crucial call to support women and girls worldwide and a source of encouragement for everyone seeking to embrace their authentic self and overcome obstacles." Booklist

"Las Vegas Aces star Wilson, two-time winner of the WNBA's MVP award, debuts with a down-to-earth meditation on the complexities of Black girlhood." Publishers Weekly
