Tanita S. Davis' Peas and Carrots
The latest from Davis, a Coretta Scott King honor award winner, is a really sweet, simple, and realistic look at a complicated family, the foster care system, sibling and friend relationships, and more. I also really appreciated the depiction of minorities, particularly the middle-class family at the center of the story. I wished there had been a little more at the end, but it did leave me with a nice, hopeful feeling. Really good stuff. A/A-.
