Title: The Other Side

Author: Jacqueline Woodson

KDL Description:

JE WOODSON

Two girls, one white and one black, gradually get to know each other as they sit on the fence that divides their town.

Amazon Description:

Clover’s mom says it isn’t safe to cross the fence that segregates their African-American side of town from the white side where Anna lives. But the two girls strike up a friendship, and get around the grown-ups’ rules by sitting on top of the fence together.

With the addition of a brand-new author’s note, this special edition celebrates the tenth anniversary of this classic book. As always, Woodson moves readers with her lyrical narrative, and E. B. Lewis’s amazing talent shines in his gorgeous watercolor illustrations.
