Description

Heaven is the perfect name for the small Ohio town where 14-year-old Marley lives. Or at least she thought so until the fateful day when the mysterious letter arrived. Now her life has been turned upside down. Twelve years ago Momma chose to live in Heaven because she liked the name of the town and the white picket fences and the little schoolhouse by the river. Pops agreed that it was a good place after he made sure it had a Western Union office. Ever since she can remember, Marley's been sent to Western Union to wire money to Uncle Jack. Now that she's learned the significance of those errands, life will never be the same. This award-winning author introduces a likeable, believable young character. Listeners empathize with her search for identity and are edified by her choice to forgive the family who hid her adoption from her.

Professional reviews

"What brings happiness to 14-year-old Marley, living in the town of Heaven? Summer unfolds with a job babysitting for Feather, trips to Ma's Superette for flip-flops, and a developing friendship with the perplexing Shoogy. Postcards arrive regularly from Uncle Jack and his dog, Boy. But Marley's world suddenly explodes and realigns when a letter arrives in the mail. In her Coretta Scott King award-winning book, Angela Johnson presents the poignant struggles of Marley as she comes to grips with the relationships in her life. Narrator Andrea Johnson treats the listener to all the emotions of a young adult--enthusiasm, dejection, tenderness, perplexity, and the craving for what might have been. Johnson's intensity leads both the listener and Marley to an understanding of what makes a family. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
