The Road to Paris (eBook)

Description


Paris has just moved in with the Lincoln family, and she isn?t thrilled to be in yet another foster home. She has a tough time trusting people, and she misses her brother, who?s been sent to a boys? home. Over time, the Lincolns grow on Paris. But no matter how hard she tries to fit in, she can?t ignore the feeling that she never will, especially in a town that?s mostly white while she is half black. It isn?t long before Paris has a big decision to make about where she truly belongs.


About the Author


Nikki Grimes conveyed the fire-in-the-belly fervor of a Harlem girl who knows she was born to write in Jazmin's Notebook, a Coretta Scott King Honor Book. In My Man Blue, a Booklist Editor's Choice and Newsweek Children's Books of the Year selection, her artful words expressed a boy's journey from skepticism to trust. And now with Bronx Masquerade she presents a rich chorus of eighteen voices, singing openly about ideas, feelings, and questions--things that open minds, invite debate, provide release. A recent Booklist review proclaims: "As always, Grimes gives young people exactly what they're looking for--real characters who show them they are not alone."

An accomplished poet, novelist, journalist, and educator, Ms. Grimes was born and raised in New York City and now lives in the Los Angeles area.
