Moving from Chicago to a small town, cool and streetwise fifth-grader Yolonda struggles to adapt to her new school and to persuade her mother and other adults that her little brother, Andrew, is a harmonica genius. By the author of Randalls Wall. *Author: Fenner, Carol *Series Title: Newbery Honor Book *Publication Date: 1995/05/01 *Binding Type: Hardbound *Grade Level: 4-6 *Language: English *Depth: 0.75 *Width: 5.50 *Height: 8.50
From the Publisher:
When they move from Chicago to a smaller, safer town, Yolonda is scornful of her new school, and her brother Andrew is having trouble learning to read. All he likes to do is play the harmonica given to him by his father to teethe on. Yolonda knows that's the way he "talks", and she's convinced that Andrew has a true musical gift.
Yolanda's widowed mother thinks Chicago is no place to raise her children so she moves the family to a small suburb in Michigan. Yolanda notices that her younger brother has trouble learning to read--all he likes to do is play the harmonica.
Convinced her brother is a musical genius, Yolanda tries to get her mother and other adults to recognize his talent. A warm portrayal of an African-American family and a sister's love and respect for her brother.
