A heartwarming celebration of all skin shades, from sun-browned to autumn-leaf-gold!

Amrita and Kiki are best friends and sunflower sisters. Amrita's older sister is getting married, but when the elder relatives arrive, they start dispensing some old-fashioned and dubious advice. Luckily, Amrita's mother has a lesson or two to teach about that! With the support and empowerment of their moms, the sunflower sisters are two strong, confident girls—one South Asian the other Nigerian—finding joy in their own skin.
