Dyamonde Daniel may be new in town, but that doesn't stop her from making a place for herself in a jiffy. With her can-do attitude and awesome brain power she takes the whole neighborhood by storm. The only thing puzzling her is the other new kid in her class. He's grouchy but Dyamonde's determined to get to the bottom of his attitude and make a friend.

Nikki Grimes conveyed the fire-in-the-belly fervor of a Harlem girl who knows she was born to write in Jazmin's Notebook, a Coretta Scott King Honor Book. In My Man Blue, a Booklist Editor's Choice and Newsweek Children's Books of the Year selection, her artful words expressed a boy's journey from skepticism to trust. And now with Bronx Masquerade she presents a rich chorus of eighteen voices, singing openly about ideas, feelings, and questions--things that open minds, invite debate, provide release. A recent Booklist review proclaims: "As always, Grimes gives young people exactly what they're looking for--real characters who show them they are not alone."An accomplished poet, novelist, journalist, and educator, Ms. Grimes was born and raised in New York City and now lives in the Los Angeles area.From AudioFile:
Third-grader Dyamonde Daniel is spunky, super smart, and "skinny as half a toothpick." Right away, it's obvious that author and narrator Nikki Grimes has created a special character. Since moving into the neighborhood, Dyamonde has been trying to find her place in her new school. When a new kid named Free joins her classroom, Dyamonde wants to help him feel welcome but gets only rudeness in return. Changing the timbre of her voice to differentiate the two children, Grimes allows listeners to experience their engaging personalities. Grimes dramatizes Dyamonde's perseverance and observant nature, making it fully believable when Free finally warms up to her. E.A.B. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
