Reviews

Praise for SUGAR:
"[Rhodes'] prose shines, reading with a spare lyricism that flows naturally. All Sugar's hurt, longing, pain and triumph shine through....A magical story of hope." - Kirkus, starred review
"Sugar is superbly trumphant -- both heroine and story. This glorious mainstay opens an underrepresented chapter in American history." - Rita Williams Garcia, Newbery Honor author of One Crazy Summer
"Sugar is sweet. Sugar is sharp. Sugar is to be savored. With nuanced storytelling, Jewell Parker Rhodes vividly portrays the brutality of the times, as well as the triumphs that arise when a community comes together. Those who read Sugar will be inspired to search deep within themselves to find the true meanings of friendship and freedom." - Andrea Davis Pinkney, winner of the Coretta Scott King Award
