Hardcover / Paperback - In this very special anthology, Jacqueline Woodson shares the writings that inspired her as a young African-American growing up in Brooklyn. Within these pages you will find the quiet poignance of Toni Morrison's Sula, the joyous proclamations of Bernice Johnson Reagon's "I Remember, I Believe," the biting colloquial brilliance of Paul Beatty's Big Bowls of Cereal . . . and a host of other masterful works.
Filled with both poems and stories, A WAY OUT OF NO WAY is at once a deep and tender tribute to the delicacy of adolescence and a first-rate study of African-American literature.
Age Range: 12 - 17
