Product description

**"Nourishes the spirit and fills the soul." - Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich, author of O_peration Sisterhood_

"Touching and inspiring." - Lisa Moore Ramée, author of A Good Kind of Trouble

"A taste of history with the thrills of mystery and brims with family secrets." - Alicia D. Williams, award-winning author of _Genesis Begins Again_**
Judy Blume meets Jacqueline Woodson in this powerful and sweetly emotional coming-of-age story about finding your place in the world, from the author of _How High the Moon_.**

This was supposed to be the best year ever for eleven-year-old Stevie Morrison. But instead, her life seems determined to turn itself upside down.

First of all, her parents can't stop fighting - and they decide to move the family to a totally new apartment, in a totally new part of town, which means a totally new middle school for Stevie. On top of that, her best friend, Jennifer, is acting weird. She won't return Stevie's phone calls, and apparently her new best friends are a bunch of mean girls.

The final straw comes with the arrival of Stevie's teenage cousin Naomi - sent down in disgrace from Boston (though no one will tell Stevie why). But with Naomi comes an exciting glimpse of a world Stevie hasn't paid much attention to before: one of Cleopatra Jones movies, women's liberation and an intriguing-sounding group called the Black Panthers.

It might not be the year Stevie anticipated. But it will be the one that changes her life forever.

**Praise for How High the Moon:

"Essential reading, full of voices that must be heard. One of the best stories I've read in a long while" - Emma Carroll, author of _Letters from the Lighthouse
"An impressive debut" - Mail on Sunday
