Overview

Am ricas Award Winner

"An achingly beautiful story."--Kirkus (starred review) "Eloquent."--Booklist (starred review) "Lovely and lyrical."--School Library Journal

This powerful and resonant Am ricas Award-winning novel tells the story of a young girl's struggle to find her place in the world and to become a writer in a country where words are feared.

Seamlessly interweaving both poetry and prose, Lynn Joseph's acclaimed debut is a lush and lyrical journey into a landscape and culture of the Dominican Republic.

The Color of My Words explores the pain and poetry of discovering what it means to be part of a family, what it takes to find your voice and the means for it to be heard, and how it feels to write it all down.
