Yolonda is smart tough and big for her age No one messes with her Yolonda's little brother Andrew doesn't talk much and he can't Yolanda can see things about her brother Andrew that others can't She can see past the fact that he can't read and struggles in school She knows that he is not just making noise on the harmonica that he carries; he is making music Andrew takes everyday noises and sights and creates music to match them on his harmonica Yolanda believes he is a prodigy a genius But she can't get anyone else to see it too When the family visits her aunt in Chicago they attend the great Blues music festival There Yolanda sees a chance for Andrew to be discovered Maybe then others will see his worthI enjoyed Andrew as a character and could really feel his struggles with reading How many kids are out there just like Andrew that can't understand the black suiggles on a paper as writing but when something like music is put in front of them it all becomes clear The parts about Andrew and the skate park with the drug dealers held my interest and made me anxious for him But then they dropped out of sight and that part felt unresolvedYolanda's character was bossy and annoying There were very few ualities about her that were enjoyable to read about The only part that interested me with Yolanda was her interest in the boy at the skate park but that was dropped in the middle of the book That almost made her likable I really only kept reading the whole book to find out what happens to AndrewThis was a Newbery honor book but as is the case with many of the Newbery selections it was not a book that will interest most average kids It really felt like a book that was written so that teachers could push it onto kids as have to read not enjoy reading

Yolonda's GeniusRead but he creates unbelievable music When Yolonda reads the definition of genius in the dictionary she knows it describes And Yolanda is big for her age but she knows how to handle herself when the 'whale' jokes happen She's smart but surly and she doesn't really have any friends Her little brother is uiet and has trouble reading but Yolanda becomes convinced that he is a genius with their father's old harmonica so she sets out to create a scheme that will convince her mother he needs special schooling to foster his giftThere were things I really appreciated about this book but then there were others that I really didn't From the start I didn't at all like Yolanda's character; I assumed that the story was traveling along the 'closed off and prone to roughness kid learns to open up and empathize' theme so prevalent in Newbery Honor books but Yolanda remains fairly selfish unsympathizing and unsympathetic throughout The ending was abrupt and too pat with a last minute attempt to make Yolanda seem as if she has changed although not done well enough for me to buy it There are also a few threads to the story that fail to connect by the end which leaves the whole thing feeling incomplete And then the narrator made some strange choices in the character voice department making one fifth grade girl sound like an old diner waitress with a decades long smoking habit StrangeAll this is too bad really because of the good things here Yolanda's little brother and his musical abilities are nicely painted especially in contrast to his struggles with reading and speaking It seems clear that he's on the autism scale and although his mother doesn't seem to want to admit that he finds a strong ally in a speech therapist at school and that relationship although not completely fleshed out is nicely portrayed Also Yolanda's family is made up of her mother and her aunt who are self made black women from Chicago and are easily members of the upper middle class there What I love about this is that it's presented as no big deal as in clearly achievable to the point that it's not something to make the focus of the story Most Middle Grade books featuring black families seem to revolve around those families living in poor neighborhoods and struggling financially and those stories are important yes but it's also important to show other possibilities and other realities to young readers of color I want them to live in a world in which successful women of color are so commonplace that that idea takes a far back seat to the rest of the story in the books those young readers read So I'd like to see of this but I'd also like this particular story to live up to this background setting
