Editorial Reviews

Review

A CCBC Recommended Multicultural Book for Children and Teens

"Jewell Parker Rhodes has written a powerful novel about family and survival in the face of tragedy and has created in her twelve-year-old narrator Lanesha, a true heroine. [She] shows a kind of bravery and big-heartedness that is a gift she passes along to her friend, her community and the readers of this luminous book."―Walter Mosley

"An absolutely exquisite children's debut by Jewell Parker Rhodes. Jewell's vivid writing brings the setting to life, in a story that is both timely and unforgettable."―Patricia Reilly Giff

"Lanesha is a miraculous candle of a girl: her flame burns steadier in hurricane winds, and glows brighter against dark flood-waters. Jewell Parker Rhodes's book shines with love."―Sara Pennypacker

"An enjoyable, satisfying novel about the magical spirit of a young girl navigating her way through an American tragedy."―Christopher Paul Curtis

"A girl with special powers awakens to the New Orleans around her in a story told with gritty poetry."―Richard Peck

"A beautiful, moving, personal story. Unforgettable. I loved it."―Justine Larbalestier

"Another gem by Jewell Parker Rhodes. Two youngsters, friends forever, find a way to survive, to love, to begin again. Wow! What a legacy to pass along."―Nikki Giovanni
