Dorris's first book for children presents a soulful, affecting portrait of a family living on a pristine Bahamian island in 1492. Presented in alternating chapters are the lyrical, imagery-filled first person narratives of Morning Girl and her younger brother, Star Boy ... With its spare compelling prose, Dorris's singularly involving work should be read by both children and adults for many generations to come.
