"ZORA AND ME evokes a world of un-self-conscious blackness and children steeped in games and fantasy in a moral, tightknit community."
From the Publisher
Annotation Set during Zora Neal Hurston's grade school years, this compelling historical middle grade novel is told from the perspective of her childhood best friend, Carrie. The two explore their hometown of Eatonville, Florida, and uncover a mystery that entrances them. Storytelling, imagination, and the struggles of living in the Jim Crow south are part of this gripping story. A 2011 John Steptoe New Talent Award recipient.
Editors Note Winner of the 2011 John Steptoe New Talent (Author) Award!Racial duplicity threatens an idyllic African American community in the turn-of-the-century South in a dazzling debut inspired by the early life of Zora Neale Hurston.Whether she’s telling the truth or stretching it, Zora Neale Hurston is a riveting storyteller. Her latest creation is a shape-shifting gator man who lurks in the marshes, waiting to steal human souls. But when boastful Sonny Wrapped loses a wrestling match with an elusive alligator named Ghost — and a man is found murdered by the railroad tracks soon after — young Zora’s tales of a mythical evil creature take on an ominous and far more complicated complexion, jeopardizing the peace and security of an entire town and forcing three children to come to terms with the dual-edged power of pretending. Zora’s best friend, Carrie, narrates this coming-of-age story set in the Eden-like town of Eatonville, Florida, where justice isn’t merely an exercise in retribution, but a testimony to the power of community, love, and pride. A fictionalization of the early years of a literary giant, this astonishing novel is the first project ever to be endorsed by the Zora Neale Hurston Trust that was not authored by Hurston herself.From the Hardcover edition.
