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

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The tone is intimate, as is the point of view, and the reader observes the action through the eyes of the sensitive Lafayette....Hope is a good thing, and Woodson hands it to her readers like a gift at the conclusion of this emotionally cathartic, gracefully constructed family story." - Janice M. Del Negro May 2000
