After Tupac and D Foster

While reading the book After Tupac and D Foster, I kept thinking back to all my fantastic trips to NYC. I wished I could go sit on the stoop with the girls. Or jump rope with them. Woodson has done such a good job with setting in this novel.

I also thought back to my HS days (or maybe jr high) when Tupac was a huge star. I remember how he was always in the news. And these are the memories from a small town white girl. I had to go to project playlist and search for the Tupac songs the girls talked about in the book. This book would be perfect for a playlist!

Overall, it was a short read...with short chapters. It was highly readable. I hope it ends up on the Quick Picks for reluctant readers list.
