After Tupac and D Foster

By Jacqueline Woodson

A Newbery Honor Book
The day D Foster enters Neeka and her best friend s lives, the world opens up for them. Suddenly they re keenly aware of things beyond their block in Queens, things that are happening in the world like the shooting of Tupac Shakur and in search of their Big Purpose in life. When all too soon D s mom swoops in to reclaim her, and Tupac dies, they are left with a sense of how quickly things can change and how even all-too-brief connections can touch deeply.
