Jazmin's Notebook

by

Jazmin's Notebook Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jazmin Shelby was "born with clenched fists"-which is okay, since she's got a lot of fighting ahead of her. Her dad died a couple of years back, and now that her mom's in the hospital, it's just her and her big sister, CeCe. But that's fine by Jazmin. She's got her friends, her school, lots of big plans for the future-and a zest for life and laughter that's impossible to resist.

Synopsis:

Jazmin Shelby knows how to fight — after all, she's always had to. Her dad died a couple of years back, and now that her mom's in the hospital, it's just her and her sister, CeCe. But that's okay by Jazmin. She's got her stoop on Amsterdam Avenue, where she can keep an eye on all the neighborhood action. She's got her friends Sophie and Destinee to keep her laughing. And most of all, she's got her notebook, filled to the brim with poetry, laughter, and her own irrepressible views on life, Harlem, and just about everything else.

Synopsis:

"With exuberance, passion, perception, and wit, 14-year-old Jazmin Shelby fills her notebook with glimpses of her life, neighborhood, family, and dreams in Harlem in the 1960s."--"School Library Journal, " starred review.

About the Author

Nikki Grimes conveyed the fire-in-the-belly fervor of a Harlem girl who knows she was born to write in Jazmin's Notebook, a Coretta Scott King Honor Book. In My Man Blue, a Booklist Editor's Choice and Newsweek Children's Books of the Year selection, her artful words expressed a boy's journey from skepticism to trust. And now with Bronx Masquerade she presents a rich chorus of eighteen voices, singing openly about ideas, feelings, and questions--things that open minds, invite debate, provide release. A recent Booklist review proclaims: "As always, Grimes gives young people exactly what they're looking for--real characters who show them they are not alone."

An accomplished poet, novelist, journalist, and educator, Ms. Grimes was born and raised in New York City and now lives in the Los Angeles area.
