9780316074025: Bird in a Box

In a small upstate New York town during the Great Depression, three children--Hibernia, Willie, and Otis--are about to meet.
Hibernia dreams of becoming a famous singer and performing at Harlem's swanky Savoy Ballroom.Willie is recovering from a tragedy that prevents him from becoming a junior boxing champ.Otis spends every night glued to the radio, listening to the voices that remind him of Daddy and Ma.
Each of them is looking for hope, and they all find it in the thrilling boxing matches of young Joe Louis. They know Joe has a good chance of becoming the country's next heavyweight champion. What they don't know is that during this unforgettable year, the three of them will become friends.

Book Description Little, Brown Company, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Sean Qualls (illustrator). Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. It s 1937. America is struggling to get out of the Great Depression and 3 children, Otis, Willie and Hibernia, are about to become friends. They already have a lot in common: they ve each lost a loved one, they re all reaching for their dreams and they re a lot like their hero, African American boxer Joe Louis. As their lives gradually converge to form friendship, family and love, the children learn that hope and determination can change their lives forever. In this moving novel, their trials and triumphs echo those of Joe Louis, as he fights to become the next heavyweight boxing champion of the world. Award-winning and bestselling author Andrea Davis Pinkney masterfully weaves in factual information about Joe Louis and actual radio commentary from his fights, enriching the narrative of this uniquely rendered and beautifully written novel.

This novel captures her family s recollections of the night Joe Louis won the title and what it meant to them but it also shows how one victory gave hope to a nationwide community.
