SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT: 

Not Quite Snow White is about a girl name Tameika. Tameika loves to perform and has loved every role she’s had. When she finds out that the school play is Snow White, Tameika can’t wait to audition and be a princess. However, Tameika overhears other students saying that she is too tall, too chubby, and too brown to be a princess.

Tameika becomes upset and starts to question whether or not she can be a princess because of her appearance. When she goes home, her parents help her get her confidence back and realize that she is just enough of everything needed to be a princess. Tameika goes back to school to audition the next day and remembers all the good things about herself. She blows everyone away with her audition and becomes Snow White.
