Reviews

"Myers has a great natural style . . . and is completely at home in a Harlem depicted without adulation but with great affection." --The Horn Book Magazine, Starred

"Readers will find that they could settle in for hours and take it all in." --Publishers Weekly, Starred

"Fast, wry, and honest . . . the search for personal identity is at the heart of this lyrical collection, and so is the sense of the place." --Booklist, Boxed
