Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 1996. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Harper Trophy ed. 173 x 104 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Harlem. The late 1940s. Fifteen-year-old Johnny Gibbs loves his parents, respects his teachers, and is a model student. Suddenly, his familiar world falls apart. Johnny learns he is really a foster child who the welfare authorities have decreed now must go and live with another family. Stunned by the revelation, Johnny runs away. The startling events that follow, during Johnny s nightlong confrontation with alienation and loneliness, will inexorably push him past the frontiers of childhood and into an unknown, violent world beyond. Rite of Passage, Richard Wright s never-before-published story of Johnny Gibbs s fall from grace, is as pertinent to the fate of many young people today as it was when it was first conceived nearly fifty years ago.

Book Description HarperTeen. Paperback. Book Condition: New. David Diaz (illustrator). Paperback. 160 pages. Dimensions: 6.8in. x 4.1in. x 0.5in.Johnny, youre leaving us tonight . . . Fifteen-year-old Johnny Gibbs does, well in school, respects his teachers, and loves his family. Then suddenly, with a few short words, his idyllic life is shattered. He learns that the family he has loved all his life is not his own, but a foster family. And now he is being sent to live with someone else. Shocked by the news, Johnny does the only thing he can think of: he runs. Leaving his childhood behind forever, Johnny takes to the streets where he learns about living life--the hard way. Richard Wright, internationally acclaimed author of Black Boy and Native Son, gives us a coming-of-age story as compelling today as when it was first written, over fifty years ago. Johnny Gibbs arrives home jubilantly one day with his straight A report card to find his belongings packed and his mother and sister distraught. Devastated when they tell him that he is not their blood relative and that he is being sent to a new foster home, he runs away. His secure world quickly shatters into a nightmare of subways, dark alleys, theft and street warfare. . . . Striking characters, vivid dialogue, dramatic descriptions, and enduring themes introduce a enw generation of readers to Wrights powerful voice. SLJ.
