Hush | Jacqueline Woodson
10 posts | 7 read | 16 to read
A powerfully moving novel from a three-time Newbery Honor-winning author Evie Thomas is not who she used to be. Once she had a best friend, a happy home and a loving grandmother living nearby. Once her name was Toswiah. Now, everything is different. Her family has been forced to move to a new place and change their identities. But that's not all that has changed. Her once lively father has become depressed and quiet. Her mother leaves teaching behind and clings to a new-found religion. Her only sister is making secret plans to leave. And Evie, struggling to find her way in a new city where kids aren't friendly and the terrain is as unfamiliar as her name, wonders who she is. Jacqueline Woodson weaves a fascinating portrait of a thoughtful young girl's coming of age in a world turned upside down A National Book Award Finalist

“I don‘t know how celebrating the fact that Pilgrims and Native Americans stoped fighting long enough to sit down and eat a meal together is a Sin in God‘s eyes”

Another incredibly well done book by Woodson. A young Black girl and her family move from their home under the witness protection program after her father agrees to testify against his fellow police officers after a young unarmed Black child is killed. This book talks extensively about identity, change, race, serving as an officer and family! Really well done.

TheNextBook @JSW as the daughter of retired cop, this is hitting home. I com from a family of cops. I know there are amazing cops out there. But I also know that not all of them are good cops... 2y
JSW @TheNextBook As a white girl I grew up hearing that cops were the people to go to when I needed help. Now I know that isn‘t true for many folx. It makes me feel sad, angry, and hopeless. It‘s complicated and heartbreaking. Which is just all a way of saying can I sit with you and hold your hand? (edited) 2y
TheNextBook @JSW as long as we can have drinks in the other hand then yes! 2y

Casually reading this while my mom is here. This is the second Woodson novel for young children I‘ve found recently and I couldn‘t resist grabbing it!

This one has been on my classroom shelf for a while, so I finally decided to dive in. The story is moving and makes you appreciate what you have and aware that things can change. I think my middle grade students will find this engaging.

Laura317 I love the cover. 💕 2y
