From the Publisher
Editors Note Â?Hope is the thing with feathersÂ? starts the poem Frannie is reading in school. Frannie hasnÂ't thought much about hope. There are so many other things to think about. Each day, her friend Samantha seems a bit more Â?holy.Â? There is a new boy in class everyone is calling the Jesus Boy. And although the new boy looks like a white kid, he says heÂ's not white. Who is he? During a winter full of surprises, good and bad, Frannie starts seeing a lot of things in a new lightÂ?her brother SeanÂ's deafness, her motherÂ's fear, the class bullyÂ's anger, her best friendÂ's faith and her own desire for Â?the thing with feathers.Â? Jacqueline Woodson once again takes readers on a journey into a young girlÂ's heart and reveals the pain and the joy of learning to look beneath the surface.
Annotation Set in 1971, this petite, moving middle grade novel focuses on sixth grader Frannie's family life and on Trevor, the oddly pale new boy in her class. Using straightforward narration to explore complex emotions, author Jacqueline Woodson looks at Frannie's emotional life with tenderness and hope. A 2008 Newbery Honor Book.
