About this product
- DescriptionA poignant, powerful debut that combines the deep emotion of <i>The House on Mango Street</i> with uniquely creative storytelling. Unfolding in a series of tiny vignettes, <i>A Little Piece of Sky</i> introduces an endearing new velist and a truly unforgettable main character. In the first few chapters we meet a little girl named Song Byrd, who keenly reports on the world around her. She is African American (in a mostly Hispanic neighborhood), unwanted (conceived during an adulterous affair), and poor in the material sense but extraordinarily rich in spirit. In piercingly insightful prose, Nicole Bailey-Williams takes readers on Song s journey through life as she struggles against outsider status and intense guilt over her mother s murder. Behind it all, places of pure joy, dreaming the hurt away, and glorious little pieces of sky shine through. Song s tales--and Bailey-Williams s narrative gift--are truly words to treasure.
