Professional reviews

""Hope is the thing with feathers/ That perches in the soul," wrote Emily Dickinson. Frannie, the narrator of Jacqueline Woodson's Newbery Honor book, is enamored with the language and rhythm of this poem as she grapples with its meaning. Sisi Aisha Johnson, as Frannie, introduces us to her parents, her deaf older brother, and her sixth-grade class. When the class bully names a new student "Jesus Boy" because he's too white to belong in the predominately black middle school, Frannie must deal with issues of friendship, religion, racism, and morality. Johnson weaves Woodson's lyrical language into a downy comforter that wraps the listener in hope for Frannie's future. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
