Frannie doesn't know what to make of the poem she's reading in school. She hasn't thought much about hope. There are so many other things to think about. Each day, her friend Samantha seems a bit more holy. There is a new boy in class everyone is calling the Jesus Boy. And although the new boy looks like a white kid, he says he's not white. Who is he?

During a winter full of surprises, good and bad, Frannie starts seeing a lot of things in a new light - her brother Sean's deafness, her mother's fear, the class bully's anger, her best friend's faith and her own desire for the thing with feathers.

Newbery Honor-winning author Jacqueline Woodson once again takes listeners on a journey into a young girl's heart and reveals the pain and the joy of learning to look beneath the surface. Download and start listening now!

    " Though the underlying premise of the book--black couple adopts white 3-year-old--seemed a bit unrealistic to me, this is a sweet and engaging look at relations between children, other children, the adults in their lives, and how events, both past and present, influence and shape their thoughts and actions. Frannie, the narrator, brings the reader into her attempts to make sense of what she sees, experiences, and thinks about. Her hope springs ultimately not from wishes or the supernatural, but from what she sees can be in the reality of what is. "

    " as usual, a lovely book by Woodson. I'm curious - was it likely, or even possible, in the 1070s for a black family to adopt a white child? Seems like our society may still be a bit too racist to allow that to happen. Maybe I'm just too cynical? "
