A Little Piece of Sky by Nicole Bailey Williams

A poignant, powerful debut that combines the deep emotion of The House on Mango Street with uniquely creative storytelling. Unfolding in a series of tiny vignettes, A Little Piece of Sky introduces an endearing new novelist and a truly unforgettable main character. In the first few chapters we meet a little girl named Song Byrd, who keenly reports on the world around her. She is African American (in a mostly Hispanic neighborhood), unwanted (conceived during an adulterous affair), and poor in the material sense but extraordinarily rich in spirit. In piercingly insightful prose, Nicole Bailey-Williams takes readers on Songs journey through life as she struggles against outsider status and intense guilt over her mothers murder. Behind it all, places of pure joy, dreaming the hurt away, and glorious little pieces of sky shine through. Songs tales--and Bailey-Williamss narrative gift--are truly words to treasure.
