Praise for The Chameleon Girl:

"The book’s strength lies in its remarkably human portrayal of its characters. It delves into their vulnerabilities, intentions (both virtuous and flawed), and diverse personalities. It skillfully demonstrates how one person’s choices can ripple through the lives of others, affecting not only their contemporaries but also future generations. While there have been numerous stories depicting the experiences of biracial individuals and their unique struggles, The Chameleon Girl is a breath of fresh air." - Adaobi Nnadozie in Book o'Clock Review
