"Eleven-year-old Brooklyn girl Delphine feels overwhelmed with worries and responsibilities. She's just started sixth grade and is self-conscious about being the tallest girl in the class, and nervous about her first school dance. She's supposed to be watching her sisters, but Fern and Vonetta are hard to control. Her uncle Darnell is home from Vietnam and seems different. And her pa has a girlfriend. At least Delphine can write to her mother in Oakland, California, for advice. But why does her mother tell her to 'be eleven' when Delphine is now twelve?" -- from publisher's web site.

The sequel to the amazing One Crazy Summer (which won a Newberry award), P.S. Be Eleven continues the engaging adventures of the Gaither sisters. Such a good book (even if the first one is my favorite)! Looking so much forward to reading the next book about these characters!

In this sequel to One Crazy Summer, the Gaither sister are back in Brooklyn with their father and grandmother after spending the summer with their poet-mother who was involved with The Black Panthers. I didn't find this story nearly as compelling as the first, but Williams-Garcia does a great job of revealing the race, gender and political issues of the late 1960's in this historical novel.
