When D Foster walks into Neeka and her best friend's lives, their world opens up. D doesn't have a real mom constantly telling her what to do, and the girls envy her independence. But D wants nothing more than to feel connected, and the three girls form a tight bond - and a passion for the music of Tupac Shakur. D's the one who understands Tupac's songs best, and through her, his lyrics become more personal for all of them.

After Tupac is shot the first time, the girls are awed by how he comes back stronger than ever. And seeing how Tupac keeps on keeping on helps when Neeka's brother is wrongly sent to jail and D's absent mom keeps disappointing. But by the time Tupac is shot again, the girls have turned 13 and everything's changed, except their belief in finding their Big Purpose.

Newbery Honor winner Jacqueline Woodson's compelling and inspiring story shows up how music touches our lives, how much life can be lived in a short time, and how all-too-brief connections can touch us to the core and remain a part of us forever. Download and start listening now!

    " I read this because it was a Newbery Honor book. "

    " I really enjoyed how this book was written in the narrator/main characters real voice. i think the use of this type of voice and jargon makes the book so much more beleivable and relateable. for some of my fellow classmates i know they thought it was hard to read becuase it was written in this way, but i actually really liked it because i could envision and hear the narrator speaking, which would have been much harder if the book had been written in someone elses pattern of speech.

    " I really liked the flow of this one. Woodson does such a good job of putting her reader right into the scenes of her characters. I really felt like I was sitting on the steps with the three girls. Worth reading a recommending to 4th grade through middle school. "

    " This book is really more like 3.5 stars, but I'm rounding up today. I did like this book, and I thought it spoke fairly well about growing up and changing. However, I don't think it is a book that will stay with me over long. It doesn't have that resonance that many of the other Newbery, and YA books I've read, which is sad. It very well might be the mood I have been in while reading it, but it doesn't really speak to me. I still liked it though, and I can see why this received an Honor. "
