Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Frannie doesn't know what to make of the poem she's reading in school. She hasn't thought much about hope. There are so many other things to think about. Each day, her friend Samantha seems a bit more a holy. There is a new boy in class everyone is calling the Jesus Boy. And although the new boy looks like a white kid, he says he's not white. Who is he?

During a winter full of surprises, good and bad, Frannie starts seeing a lot of things in a new light - her brother Sean's deafness, her mother's fear, the class bully's anger, her best friend's faith and her own desire for the thing with feathers.

Newbery Honor-winning author Jacqueline Woodson once again takes listeners on a journey into a young girl's heart and reveals the pain and the joy of learning to look beneath the surface.

Synopsis:

Nobody knows what to make of the new boy in Frannie's class. Not only does he look different, but he's kind to everyone, he refuses to fight, and he doesn't even seem to mind when the other kids nickname him Jesus Boy. But as winter progresses, Frannie realizes that she's starting to see a whole lot of things in a new light: her brother's deafness, her mother's fear, her friend Samantha's faith, their classmate Trevor's anger, and her own desire for hope - "the thing with feathers." And it's all because of Jesus Boy's differences . . . and his friendship.

This book is very inspiring. The author takes you into the life of a young girl who is going through what might just be the greatest struggle of her life. There's a new boy at school-but he's a white kid in a black school. There's no more segregation-it's the 1970's but he still doesn't have a place. Her brother is deaf and her mother is going through something that she has almost always failed at. But in the end, she learns what it means to have feathers. This book is written around the famous poem, Hope, by Emily Dickinson.
