This riveting novel in verse, perfect for fans of Jacqueline Woodson and Toni Morrison, explores American history and race through the eyes of a teenage boy embracing his newfound identity.
Connor's grandmother leaves his dad a letter when she dies, and the letter's confession shakes their tight-knit Italian American family: The man who raised Dad is not his birth father.
But the only clues to this birth father's identity are a class ring and a pair of pilot's wings. And so Connor takes it upon himself to investigate - a pursuit that becomes even more pressing when Dad is hospitalized after a stroke. What Connor discovers will lead him and his father to a new, richer understanding of race, identity, and each other.
“[Nelson’s] meticulous verse is the perfect vehicle to convey the devastating fragility of racial and familial identity in an America where interracial love is still divided through the problem of the color line.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)
“Inspired by her father’s remarkable experiences as a Tuskegee Airman, esteemed historian-poet Nelson has aced it again.... This slice of history has been told before, but not like this.” (Booklist)
“Nelson’s powerful command of language is inarguable.” (Publishers Weekly)
