A powerful story set in Chicago's South Side about a boy who discovers the poetry of Langston Hughes
"Cline-Ransome, lauded for her picture books including Booklist’s 2018 Top of the List title, Before She Was Harriet, proves herself here an adept novelist, one with keen insight into the human condition. Every character, child and adult, is layered, a feat made more remarkable by the fact that the writing is spare. Emotions and relationships are teased out through quiet details and glimmers of understanding, but the impact on the reader could not be more powerful." - Booklist, Starred Review
