I Am BEAUTIFUL, a new book by Sameal W Graves, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

I Am BEAUTIFUL is about a girl who is blind yet believes she can see. She chooses to focus on the beauty she senses around her, rather than any danger, fear, or uncertainty. With strength and confidence, she does everything herself. Even though she is disabled, she lives life to the fullest. Don't let obstacles stand in the way of being successful. Embrace who you are, strive to do your best, and always believe in yourself. If a blind girl can do all these things, then you can too.
