National Book Award-finalist Ibi Zoboi makes her middle-grade debut with a moving story of a girl finding her place in a world that's changing at warp speed. Twelve-year-old Ebony-Grace Norfleet has lived with her beloved grandfather Jeremiah in Huntsville, Alabama ever since she was little. As one of the first black engineers to integrate NASA, Jeremiah has nurtured Ebony-Grace's love for all things outer space and science fiction--especially Star Wars and Star Trek. But in the summer of 1984, when trouble arises with Jeremiah, it's decided she'll spend a few weeks with her father in Harlem. Harlem is an exciting and terrifying place for a sheltered girl from Hunstville, and Ebony-Grace's first instinct is to retreat into her imagination. But soon 126th Street begins to reveal that it has more in common with her beloved sci-fi adventures than she ever thought possible, and by summer's end, Ebony-Grace discovers that Harlem has a place for a girl whose eyes are always on the stars.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Ibi ZoboiPublisher: Dutton Books for Young ReadersPublished: 08/27/2019ISBN: 9780399187353Pages: 256Weight: 0.90lbsSize: 8.40h x 5.80w x 1.00dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 05/27/2019Kirkus Reviews 06/01/2019Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 07/01/2019Booklist 06/01/2019 pg. 98Horn Book Magazine 07/01/2019 pg. 141School Library Journal 08/01/2019 pg. 72Hornbook Guide to Children 07/01/2019 - Superior,Well Above AverageAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 503383 / My Life as an Ice Cream SandwichReading Level: 5.2 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 10
