Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For Lafayette and his brothers, the challenges of growing up in New York City are compounded by the facts that they've lost their parents and it's up to eldest brother Ty'ree to support the boys, and middle brother Charlie has just returned home from a correctional facility.

Lafayette loves his brothers and would do anything if they could face the world as a team. But even though Ty'ree cares, he's just so busy with work and responsibility. And Charlie's changed so much that his former affection for his little brother has turned to open hostility.

Now, as Lafayette approaches 13, he needs the guidance and answers only his brothers can give him. The events of one dramatic weekend force the boys to make the choice to be there for each other--to really see each other--or to give in to the pain and problems of every day.

Winner of the 2001 Coretta Scott King award!

Jacqueline Woodson's most recent book for Putnam was praised by School Library Journal: "This fine author once again shows her gift for penning a novel that will ring true with young adults."

Synopsis:

Nothing is like it used to be. If it were, Mama would still be alive. Papa wouldn't have died. And Charlie would still be the same old loving big brother to thirteen-year-old Lafayette, not a hostile stranger just back from doing time at a correctional facility. Oldest brother Ty'ree would have gone to college, instead of having to work full time to support the three of them. And Lafayette wouldn't be so full of questions, like why Mama had to die, why Charlie hates him so much now, and how they're all supposed to survive these times together when so much seems to be set against them.<P>Jacqueline Woodson brings us the story of three remarkable young men — brothers who have only each other to rely on and must decide whether they'll work with that or let it tear them apart.
