heart-rending tale

Virginia Hamilton (a woman of colour) writes a heart-rending tale about Africans who forget how to fly on the slave ships on the way to America. But will they be able to remember? The poetic prose and soft illustrations are equally touching, and anyone who has wished they could remember how to fly will love this book.
