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
"This unusual novel has an emotional arc that carries the reader through the protagonist's transformation from Toswiah to Evie, from a girl defined by her past to a girl defined by her present. Woodson has given readers a finely tuned character study that is certain to provoke self-examination and perhaps discussion about what it is that makes us who we are."
From the Publisher
First Line The mother's dark brown fingers move quickly through a rise of white dough. On the stove, chicken pieces, seasoned and floured, sizzle. Afternoon sun falls softly over the kitchen. Two girls--one twelve and the other thirteen--are hunched over homework assignments.
