Product description

From Booklist

Gr. 5-8. "Instinctively I always knew that I belonged somewhere else," says 13-year-old Grace, who, along with her younger sister, has left Brooklyn to spend the summer in Trinidad with their grandmother. At first, Grace misses her home and friends, and her ambivalent feelings are further complicated by a family photo album that offers clues to a secret she has long sensed. With the help of a sweet boy next door, Grace uncovers painful answers to her questions, as well as deep, rich connections to the island. Grace tells her own story with words and sketches (drawn by the author) in a moving debut that is as frank and authentic about sibling rivalry and family anger as it is about the earthy, fruit-scented tropical setting. Many readers will connect with the family secrets that leave "little pinpricks" around the heart, and Grace's joy when she discovers that "not all secrets . . . turn your whole world upside down. Some of them are sweet little things that are simply too delicious to let slip." - Gillian Engberg

Review

Thirteen-year-old Grace has always known that somehow she doesn't fit in with the rest of her family. First, there's her wild red hair; then, there's the odd angel-shaped birthmark above her heart. Grace and her younger sister spend a few weeks' summer vacation with their grandmother in Trinidad, and she spies, in a family photo album, a blurred snapshot of an unknown man with an identical birthmark. This becomes the catalyst for a quest that will take Grace on a journey to find not only the stranger, but also her own identity and the true meaning of family. Baptiste's debut is well-written, with a determined, relatable heroine, solid characterizations, and an exotic setting that is well-evoked. A few childlike drawings interspersed throughout the text suggest illustrations created by Grace herself as she explores island life, finds a first boyfriend and shares her experiences with her best friend back home in Brooklyn. A nice read. (Fiction. 11+) (Kirkus Reviews)
