Eleven-year-old Delphine and her sisters from the Newbery Honor book One Crazy Summer are back in Brooklyn, which feels different after a summer at Black Panther camp in Oakland, CA. Delphine now finds her grandmother’s old-fashioned views on race oppressive. She’s shocked to learn her father is in love, and bewildered when her uncle returns from Vietnam so changed. Even the sisters she’s always looked after are getting more independent. With her first dance and a Jackson Five concert on the horizon, Delphine is on her way to growing up, ready or not, in this vivid novel steeped in the music and politics of the late 1960s.   (Vermont Dorothy Canfield Fisher award, 2015)
