Product description

Hope is the thing with feathers/ that perches in the soul.

What does it mean to be different? When a white boy arrives at Frannie’s all-black classroom in 1971, all their lives begin to grow and change. The pale, long-haired boy is quickly dubbed ‘Jesus Boy’ by his teasing classmates. It’s a name that seems to suit him – both his looks and his spirit. Yet Frannie is confused, not only by declarations that he’s not white, but that her friend Samantha seems to believe that he IS Jesus. In the light of this, Frannie begins to question her own beliefs. What can she learn from this pale outsider?
