Editorial Review

School Library Journal

“. . .there have been a number of books for young readers about African-American writer Zora Neale Hurston. This volume, written in engagingly fresh prose and attractively laid out in large, clear type, is one of the best. . . Probably the most objective look at this highly individual writer yet to appear in print for children, the book presents Hurston’s life as a story, a method that surely would have met with her approval. Porter observes in his afterword that ‘Jumping at the sun ain’t easy.’ Hurston did it. Porter has as well, and with a stellar degree of success.” —School Library Journal
