Editorial Reviews

Review

"A slender, note-perfect novel."The Washington Post

"The subtlety and depth with which the author conveys the girls' relationships lend this novel exceptional vividness and staying power."Publishers Weekly 

"Jacqueline Woodson has written another absorbing story that all readers—especially those who have felt the loss of a friendship—will identify with."Children's Literature 

"Woodson creates a thought-provoking story about the importance of acceptance and connections in life."VOYA

"Woodson [has] created moments of humanity that the girls respond to with whole hearts. They wear innocence like polished armor, and it shines."New York Times

From Booklist

“The summer before D Foster’s real mama came and took her away, Tupac wasn’t dead yet.” From this first line in her quiet, powerful novel, Woodson cycles backward through the events that lead to dual tragedies: a friend’s departure and a hero’s death. In a close-knit African American neighborhood in Queens, New York, the unnamed narrator lives across from her best friend, Neeka. Then D Foster wanders onto the block, and the three 11-year-old girls quickly become inseparable. Because readers know from the start where the plot is headed, the characters and the community form the focus here. A subplot about Neeka’s older brother, a gay man serving prison time after being framed for a hate crime, sometimes threatens to overwhelm the girls’ story. But Woodson balances the plotlines with subtle details, authentic language, and rich development. Beautifully capturing the girls’ passage from childhood to adolescence, this is a memorable, affecting novel about the sustaining power of love and friendship and each girl’s developing faith in her own “Big Purpose.” Grades 6-9. --Gillian Engberg --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
