Time Pieces by Virginia Hamilton

The last book from Newbery Medalist Virginia Hamilton, this autobiographical novella brings together the slave past and multi-generational present life of a young girl in Ohio.

A quietly beautiful coming-of-age story from a master storyteller. Eleven-year-old Valena lives in both the present and the past as she struggles with racism in her daily life and listens to and learns from her mother’s tales of her familys proud history. Moving backward and forward in time, these pieces of Valenas life blend to form an extraordinary portrait of the ties that bind her family together over generations.
Virginia Hamilton has deftly woven together moments in one familys history into a seamless and poignant masterpiece.
