Cassie is my youngest outsider girl, just seven and three-quarters years old. She is to be the main character in a picture book I’m working on called, “I Like Her That Way”
Cassie: Sometimes Mommy is very busy writing all day, and she doesn’t have time to get dressed, she just stays in her sweats all day, dressing it up with a sequined scarf when she comes to pick me up from school. She hasn’t even bothered to twist her dreads, she just has them pushed back with a headband, and they’re all sticking out this way and that way, and I like her that way.
