In this contemporary #OwnVoices tale, a boy is reluctant to go to his family reunion, which he's sure will be boring.
Vivid, poetic language and rich illustrations bring readers along for the boy's emotional journey, as he ultimately finds himself enjoying the large and joyous gathering in spite of himself.
This modern kid's-eye view depiction of a Black American extended family celebrates the importance of kinship and intergenerational ties.
Recommended for readers aged approx 4-8
