Sweet, Hereafter

By Angela Johnson

Added May 6, 2011

Coretta Scott King Award-winner Angela Johnson concludes her Heaven trilogy with a poignant tale of discovering where—and with whom—you belong. Shoogy doesn't know where she belongs. Since she moved to Heaven, she can count on one hand the number of people she can depend on. Her family doesn't understand, and school isn't working out. In Curtis she finds someone with a similar habit of wanting to be alone - and so they spend time alone together. As their relationship matures, Curtis has to deal with the real demons of his experience in Iraq, and Shoogy must come to terms with what it means to truly care about - and lose - someone.
