These are the words that begin the novel by Angela Jackson-Brown, a story about Sylvia Butler–a feisty, determined, young girl who, in spite of the grown-up situations she must deal with, still maintains a sense of innocence and hopefulness. Young Sylvia shows readers that although there may not be a happily ever after, there can be happy right now.
“Angela has an amazing voice and the words jump right off the page into your heart,” says WiDo’s submission editor, Allie Maldonado. “I wasn’t far into her manuscript when I knew it was exactly the type of book we love to publish– literary, with a story you can’t put down and characters who seem so real they could be living next door.”
