Overview

Miracle's Boys by Jacqueline Woodson, Dule Hill

If things hadn't changed, Charlie wouldn't have been arrested and sent to Rahway Correctional. Ty'ree would have gone to college instead of having to work full-time to support them. And Lafayette wouldn't have all of these questions in his head: Why did their parents have to die? When did Charlie turn into such a stranger? And how are the three of them going to make it through when so much seems to be set against them? With Miracle's Boys, the acclaimed Jacqueline Woodson scores another triumph.

"This compelling novel is . . . reminiscent of S. E. Hinton's The Outsiders and That Was Then, This Is Now." (The Horn Book)

"Readers will be caught up in this searing and gritty story . . . An involving novel about a family struggling to remain intact in spite of tremendous obstacles." (Kirkus Reviews)

Miracle¿s Boys is the powerful story of three brothers attempting to deal with the death of their parents. The story begins after the middle brother, Charlie, has returned from Rahway, a juvenile detention center. He has changed so much in the time he was there, that his younger brother, Lafayette, refers to him as Newcharlie. The oldest brother, Ty¿ree, struggles to take the place of both parents and provide for his family. As the story unfolds, we discover that Lafayette was the first to find his mother on the morning she passed away and blames himself for her death, because he froze and could only scream. We also discover that Ty¿ree blames himself for their father¿s death, because he told his dad to save the woman and her dog. Newcharlie has difficulty dealing with their mother¿s death, simply because he was not there when she died and attempts to comfort himself by believing that he could have saved her had he been there. As the story progresses, we watch the brothers grow closer together and begin to deal with their grief in their own separate ways, Ty¿ree and Lafayette holding to the hope that one day Newcharlie will become Charlie once more. This story is very well written and draws the reader in so that we feel the emotions of the readers as if they were our own. The author expertly uses flashbacks to help the reader ¿get to know¿ the characters and understand them on a personal level. This novel grabs the reader and draws them and we find ourselves living the struggles these boys face along with them ¿ their hopes, their dreams, and their pain. As the book closes, we realize that only two days have passed, but we feel as if we have known the boys for a lifetime. This book deals with the pain of loss, raw grief, and some teenage violence each of these issues adds to the power of the book and the relationships described. I would definitely recommend this book, though not to someone who¿s grief is new.
