Description

"[A] poignant and ultimately uplifting coming-of-age story. . . Pinkney's characters emerge complex and real in this tale of home-town pride and family loyalty."--Publishers Weekly

"Shifting moods, increasing tension, and a well-defined setting make this novel compelling and thought-provoking for readers. . . . A good read."--School Library Journal

"A rare look into the heart of a twelve-year-old girl as she balances the very real dangers of modern living against the unabashed joys of being in a close-knit black family. The author allows her characters to walk that dangerous edge between morality and adventure, which leads to insight."--Walter Dean Myers, Printz Award-winning author of Monster

"It's easy to fall in love with Nell and all the Gradys. Ms. Pinkney has the touch for healing and family recognition. . . . She makes you know that after tears, there's laughter, and everything else is bound to be all right."--Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis
