If you could sum up If I Were Oprah Winfrey in three words, what would they be?

creative solutions, bullying

What was one of the most memorable moments of If I Were Oprah Winfrey?

I love the heart to hearts with Nia and her mom. It was also great to see her best friend being so supportive.

What does Hillary Hawkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She has a great feel to her voice. Terrific pace, quick but not so fast kids won't understand. I love the way her voice has a youthful quality when narrating Nia and her friend.

Any additional comments?

It is a very sweet read that could help kids who are being bullied. It may not be the answer for everyone, but it is a different approach.
