List Price: $6.99 (Paperback - Historical Non-Fiction/Biography / Life of Young Nora Neal Hurston / Literary Giant / Coming of Age Adventure - 2010)
Description: Winner of the 2011 John Steptoe New Talent (Author) Award
Racial duplicity threatens an idyllic African American community in the turn-of-the-century South in a dazzling debut inspired by the early life of Zora Neale Hurston.
Whether she telling the truth or stretching it, Zora Neale Hurston is a riveting storyteller. Her latest creation is a shape-shifting gator man who lurks in the marshes, waiting to steal human souls. But when boastful Sonny Wrapped loses a wrestling match with an elusive alligator named Ghost - and a man is found murdered by the railroad tracks soon after - young Zora tales of a mythical evil creature take on an ominous and far more complicated complexion, jeopardizing the peace and security of an entire town and forcing three children to come to terms with the dual-edged power of pretending. Zora best friend, Carrie, narrates this coming-of-age story set in the Eden-like town of Eatonville, Florida, where justice isnt merely an exercise in retribution, but a testimony to the power of community, love, and pride. A fictionalization of the early years of a literary giant, this astonishing novel is the first project ever to be endorsed by the Zora Neale Hurston Trust that was not authored by Hurston herself. A brief biography, time line, and annotated bibliography are included(192 pages) Ages 9-12
Ashay says, "Zora Neal Hurston is one of my favorite authors, now we can get a glimpse of what life might have been like for the rambunctious inquisitive pre-teen, through the eyes of two modern day masterful storytellers. Must have for the library! Get it today."
