9780698119291: Last Summer With Maizon

Margaret loves her parents and hanging out with her best friend, Maizon. Then it happens, like a one-two punch, during the summer she turns eleven: first, Margaret's father dies of a heart attack, and then Maizon is accepted at an expensive boarding school, far away from the city they call home. For the first time in her life, Margaret has to turn to someone who isn't Maizon, who doesn't know her heart and her dreams. . . .

"Ms. Woodson writes with a sure understanding of the thoughts of young people, offering a poetic, eloquent narrative that is not simply a story of nearly adolescent children, but a mature exploration of grown-up issues: death, racism, independence, the nurturing of the gifted black child and, most important, self-discovery." ( The New York Times)

From the Publisher:

"You're my best friend in the whole world," Maizon said.

Maizon and Margaret know how lucky they are. They live on the same block on Madison Street in Brooklyn, and they're always together. But the summer they are eleven, Margaret's father dies. Then Maizon is offered a scholarship to a boarding school, where, she's afraid, she might be the only black student.

The girls can't go back to last summer, before everything changed. But can they keep their promise to be best friends forever?
