A master poet explores human diversity in this dazzling collection

James Berry weaves together memories of his Caribbean childhood with observations of young people today in forty-four poems that cover a broad range of subjects as they explore the theme of diversity. In five distinct sections, he evokes the delights and pains of growing up; celebrates the power of nature; examines the conflicts and challenges of a society unwilling to embrace its diversity; plumbs the concept of change; and uncovers the magic of myths, mysteries, and love. The Horn Book Magazine called James Berry's previous poetry collection, When I Dance, "a kind of epiphany". Here, again, this remarkable poet has created a work that will astonish readers with its beauty, its lyricism, and its clarity.
