CLAYTON BYRD GOES UNDERGROUND
In this new novel from Newbery Honor and New York Times bestselling author Rita Williams-Garcia, aspiring bluesman Clayton Byrd will not be stopped from playing his music, which ties his family together more than he ever thought.
But then the unthinkable happens. Cool Papa Byrd dies, and Clayton’s mother gives away all his instruments and forbids Clayton from playing the blues. And Clayton knows that is no way to live. Armed with his grandfather’s brown porkpie hat and his harmonica, he runs away from home, in search of the Bluesmen, hoping he can join them on the road. But on the journey on the New York City subway, Clayton learns some things that surprise him.
Powerful, compelling, and heartbreaking, this book by the award-winning author of One Crazy Summer, P.S. Be Eleven, and Gone Crazy in Alabama is a new masterpiece by one of today's most beloved children's book authors.
