Who do you think overcame the most adversity in the novel “The skin I’m in”? Maleeka has overcame the most adversity because she deals with Charlese’s bullying, makes friends with John-John and gets over burning the classroom.

Maleeka has overcome the most adversity because she had to overcome Char’s bullying. She overcame her bullying by standing up for herself on many occasions. She got back at Char by leaving the dirt on the top of her burger in the cafeteria (Flake, Pg. 57). When Char was pushing Maleeka to burn the money on Miss. Saunders desk, Maleeka tried to stand up for herself by telling Char “No, I ain’t doing it.” (Pg.142). Finally, at the end of the book when Miss. Saunders confronts Char and Maleeka about the fire in the class Maleeka, after being bullied for so long, finds the will to tell Miss. Saunders that it was Chars idea to burn the classroom. Maleeka tells Char off and finally accepts Miss. Saunders’ help when she tells Char “…I am not ugly, I am not stupid, I am Maleeka Madison, and ya I’m black, real black, and if you don’t like it, too bad, cause black is the skin I’m in!” (Pg.167). This quote shows how much adversity Maleeka has overcome, seeing how she didn’t have the guts to stand up to Char like this earlier in the book but she did now. This also tells us how much stronger Maleeka has become due to the problems and bullying facing her. Maleeka has overcome the most adversity because she had to deal with Char’s bulling by standing up for herself, resisting to burn Miss. Saunders classroom and telling her that it was Char’s idea to burn the classroom in the first place.…...
