Author Info
Jacqueline Woodson
Though she started her working life at the tender age of two as an Ebony magazine model for Alaga syrup, Jacqueline Woodson's first love was always writing. Growing up in North Carolina and Brooklyn, Woodson worked as a drama therapist for teens in need, before taking up writing full-time. She's the author of over 20 books for children of all ages, from picture books to young adult titles, including SHOW WAY and FEATHERS.
Praise
"Written with Woodson's characteristic focus on telling detail (the buttery quality of light in a kitchen), this is a tender, existential meditation on grief, interior in nature that will nevertheless touch readers who enjoyed (and wept over) the first."
"Woodson plays the language of feeling with an often stunning virtuosity; her crystalline vision makes each voice herein resonate with its own particular emotional tone."
From the Publisher
Annotation This sequel to IF YOU COME SOFTLY finds Miah's family and friends (most especially his mother, Nelia, and his girlfriend, Ellie) dealing with the aftermath of his murder. Now living among the spirits, Miah is unable to move on to his place in the afterworld until he is able to find a way comfort Nelia and Ellie and help them find a way to face their lives without him.
