9780142415221: If You Come Softly

A heartbreaking contemporary romance from a three-time Newbery Honor winning author
Jeremiah feels good inside his own skin. That is, when he's in his own Brooklyn neighborhood. But now he's going to be attending a fancy prep school in Manhattan, and black teenage boys don't exactly fit in there. So it's a surprise when he meets Ellie the first week of school. In one frozen moment their eyes lock and after that they know they fit together -- even though she's Jewish and he's black. Their worlds are so different, but to them that's not what matters. Too bad the rest of the world has to get in their way. Reviewers have called Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Jacqueline Woodson's work -exceptional- (Publishers Weekly) and -wrenchingly honest- (School Library Journal), and have said -it offers a perspective on racism and elitism rarely found in fiction for this age group- (Publishers Weekly). In If You Come Softly, she delivers a powerful story of interracial love that leaves readers wondering -why- and -if only....-
