Synopsis

Debut novel about a mixed-race family hit by tragedy in 90s Atlanta from a talented young writer. For fans of David Levithan, Jandy Nelson and Rainbow Rowell: a sweeping story about love and family from an exceptional new voice in YA. With a grandmother from China and another from Ghana, fifteen-year-old Wing Jones is often caught between worlds. But when tragedy strikes, Wing discovers a talent for running she never knew she had. Wing's speed could bring her family everything it needs. It could also stop Wing getting the one thing she wants.

Customer Reviews

Wing Jones is such a little treat landing for you on the 12th of January, and I expect you all to go out and get it because it's brilliant. Wing doesn't know where she fits in - mixed race, outside of the social cliques, awkward, in love with her brother's best friend. When her golden boy brother drunk drives, resulting in the death of passengers and landing himself in a coma, Wing struggles to keep her world together. Wing Jones is an incredibly rich book that honestly deals with tragedy and grief. It is riddled with the hope of small positive moments and makes me want to always be the best me I can be. Well done Katherine Webber and thank you. Thank you to Walker for the review copy.
