Author Bio
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

Kirkus Reviews
"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." 05/01/2004

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"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." - Janice M. Del Negro May 2004
