Annie's growing up. She wants to be an astronaut, she wants to go to the best school in the state, she wants....She's thirteen, and she's overwhelmed. When her brother invites her to spend some time in New York, she leaves that complicated life behind for a while. In the Big Apple, she gets a taste of what black artists and writers have accomplished. She is filled with inspiration, and she home goes to apply to a new high school, feeling full of dreams. The only problem is that her independent ways are misinterpreted by the very people who should understand them.
Barnes writes a compelling story. The narrative holds its form throughout the novel, and though the secondary characters needed more fleshing out, the depiction of Annie and her family ring true. The only complaint I have is a stylistic one: Barnes uses first person, present tense narration, a faddish technique which detracts from the story and makes the reader too conscious of the writer. Of course style is, as always, a matter of taste.
She also choose a good topic for this book.It was a fantastic love, and adventure kind of book!!!
