When a drawing of a little girl comes to life, she boldly declares that she doesn't want to be erased, or put into a picture that doesn't feel like her true self. Instead, she decides to speak up in a powerful way. And she has some words of advice: embrace what you have, love yourself, and "rock what ya got."
In this affirmation of self-identity and girl power, a child's memorable mantra offers a timeless lesson, reminding readers of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities that it's okay to be yourself. Bold illustrations from Kerascoët (Malala's Magic Pencil) bring the engaging story to life.
"Berger’s prose is a joyous celebration of self-love and empowerment, as Viva not only challenges her artist’s perfectionism to reframe supposed flaws, but also reminds her that “rock what ya got” was once the artist’s own powerful mantra. Kerascoët captures this same exuberance and breathes life into every inch of the page, juxtaposing the realistic world of the artist with Viva’s two-dimensional vibrancy.... A book for new and seasoned artists alike." — Kirkus Reviews
