Chandra Washington's NO MISTAKE is a valuable personal resource for young people struggling to build a positive identity in a sometimes fractured society.  It is an equally valuable resource for parents and educators who want to guide their young people toward greater self acceptance.  This book comes with substantial teaching tools that will help with both these tasks.  If you are concerned about young people growing up in a multiracial society today, you need this book! ~ Barry Brummett, Department of Communications Studies Chair, University of Texas
Chandra Washington’s creativity and immense talents know no bounds!  It’s a privilege to witness her fearlessly take on new challenges and triumph gloriously.  She is a teacher at heart, and her latest artistic venture into children’s literature is a reflection of that passion. ~ Angela Shelf Medearis, Author/President, Diva Productions, Inc
I read your book and I know I cannot do justice in expressing the many ways that it touched me - but it did deeply affect me.You did a beautiful, age appropriate job of explaining what is at the root of bullying, how one has a choice of how it will affect them, and then giving specific ideas of how to deal with it in a way that is positive for one's self. I wish that I had your book growing up - I was over weight most of my childhood and got teased a lot about that, (By the way, I grew up in the South, specifically New Orleans in the 50's, 60's and 70's, so I did live through these turbulent times. However, not being Black, my experience was very different. Luckily I was raised in a very liberal, open-minded family, which was quite a different home environment than a great deal of children in those times in the South.) 

Your story is one that children can easily identify with. I was able to relate to all of the characters in your story on some level. You did an incredible job of character development for such a short book. Your book is so well thought out and your message so clearly communicated. You truly are a gifted writer!

Your lesson is a crucial one and your book a valuable tool for parents and educators. I would be proud to display your book at book events where I feel that your book would be a good fit. Thank you so much for writing this book and signing and sending me a copy. I will do what I can to help you get your important message out into the world. ~ Eve Panzer MLIS, Founder, Barefoot Librarian (Book Fairs and Children's Bookseller)
...Tears came to my eyes reading it. I felt you poured your heart into it. What a wonderful healing manuscript. Can't wait for you to have it published and in the hands of millions. So gracefully and lovingly done. Congratulations! Can't wait for my children to read it. ~ Inonge Khabele-Stevens, Parent/Artist/Educator
