9780802733948: A Song for Bijou

Life for Alex Schrader has never involved girls. He goes to an all-boys prep school and spends most of his time goofing around with his friends. But all that changes the first time he meets Bijou Doucet, a Haitian girl recently relocated to Brooklyn after the earthquake-and he is determined to win her heart. For Bijou, change is the only constant, and she's surprised every day by how different life is in America, especially when a boy asks her out. Alex quickly learns that there are rules when it comes to girls-both in Haitian culture and with his own friends. And Bijou soon learns that she doesn't have to let go of her roots to find joy in her new life.

Told in alternating viewpoints against the vibrant backdrop of Haitian-American culture, Alex and Bijou take their first tender steps toward love in this heartwarming story.

About the Author:

JOSH FARRAR is the author of Rules to Rock By. Josh wrote A Song for Bijou as a kind of love letter to the borough of Brooklyn, New York, where he lives. To research A Song for Bijou, he interviewed Haitians and Haitian Americans in the New York area and took long winter walks in the neighborhood of Flatbush. He also sampled many delicious West Indian dishes, listened to rara music in Prospect Park, and bruised his thumb in a Haitian drumming class.

Review:

“[A] sweet story about friendship and self-discovery. . . . The portrayal of middle school is spot-on” ―VOYA on A Song for Bijou

“Well crafted . . . the alternating points of view between Bijou and Alex keep it interesting.” ―School Library Journal on A Song for Bijou

“Modern, relevant, and highly enjoyable.” ―Library Media Connection on A Song for Bijou

“Rock prevails in this spirited, never-say-die story about a girl and her dream. Farrar's first novel hits home about tween life, especially among the creative set, and for anyone who has ever been bullied.” ―School Library Journal on Rules to Rock By

“The teens' voices are funny and distinct. . . . Middle-school rockers will enjoy the show.” ―Kirkus Reviews on Rules to Rock By

“A rock 'n' roll version of Revenge of the Nerds for middle-graders. It not only provides great advice for those interested in the music industry but also for those dealing with the pressures of pre-teen life.” ―Curledupkids.com on Rules to Rock By
