From Newbery Honor- and Coretta Scott King Author Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Renée Watson comes a heartwarming and inspiring middle-grade novel about finding deep roots and exploring the past, the present, and the places that make us who we are.
Paragraph synopsis not to exceed 100 words All Amara wants for her birthday is to visit her father’s family in New York City–Harlem, to be exact. Maybe this will help her understand her family–and herself–in new way.
But New York City is not exactly what Amara thought it would be. As she explores, asks questions, and learns more and more about Harlem and about her father and his family history, she realizes how, in some ways more than others, she connects with him, her home, and her family.
