Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Toswiah Green's life ended the moment her policeman father decided to testify against a fellow officer. The Greens have had to change their identities and move to a different city. Now Toswiah is Evie Thomas, and that is the least of the changes. Her defeated father spends his days sitting by the window. Since her mother can no longer work as a teacher, she puts her energy into their new church. Her only sister is making secret plans to leave. And Evie, struggling to find her way, wonders who she is now and how she can make her future as bright as her past once was.

Synopsis:

This 2002 National Book Award finalist is reissued with a new look. When Toswiah Green's policeman father testifies against a fellow officer, the family members must change their identities and move to a different city. Now Toswiah is Evie Thomas--and that's the least of the changes.

WOW. This is AMAZING book; it was a National Book Award finalist, and it's no problem seeing why. Evie Thomas used to be named Toswiah Green; she used to have a life in Denver, CO, and her father used to be a police officer. That all changed when her father chose to testify against his fellow officers in a murder investigation. Now Evie has to adjust to leaving her whole life behind. It's poetically written, and totally avoids melodrama. Fantastic.
