it was amazing
bookshelves: kidlit, historical-fiction

This utterly charming story by the author of ELLA ENCHANTED often gets overlooked in favor of Levine's fantasy books, but it truly should not be. Dave is a wonderful character, as are the people he meets sneaking out at night to dance and listen to music in Harlem during the Jazz Age. This is a beautiful book, and a labor of love for the author, whose father grew up in a similar situation.
