Publisher Comments:

Jacqueline Woodson's remarkable, award-winning story of a boy coming to grips a sudden change in his family.

Melanin Sun's mother has some big news: she's in love with a woman. Now he has many decisions to make: Should he stand by his mother even though it could mean losing his friends? Should he abandon the only family he's ever known? Either way, Melanin Sun is about to learn the true meaning of sacrifice, prejudice, and love.

Synopsis:

Ever since Kristin, a pretty white lawyer, entered Mama's life, Melanin Sun fears that he and Mama are losing the special closeness they always shared. A 1996 Coretta Scott King Honor Book, winner of the Jane Addams Peace Award, 1996 Lambda Award, and ALA Best Book for Young Adults. Original.
