Danitra Brown Leaves Town

Grimes and Cooper return with another story told through poems about Danitra Brown and Zuri Jackson. This time, the friends exchange letters all summer long while Danitra is visiting relatives. Zuri starts out feeling angry and disappointed that Danitra is leaving her behind and doesn’t seem to care, but eventually both girls make new friends while they look forward to being together again.
