Horn Book Guide Reviews 2004 Fall

Twelve-year-old Feni, already dealing with her beloved grandmother's death and her parents' divorce, learns that a pregnant teenager—the daughter of her mother's college friend—is coming to live with them until her baby is born. Woodson's strikingly original story, with its richly developed characters, makes this a welcome reissue.",,"Older Fiction",,,,,,,,,,,26697,,,, Copyright 2004 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

PW Reviews 2004 January #1

Jacqueline Woodson's The Dear One tells of 12-year-old Feni, who is stunned when her mother brings a pregnant teenage friend to stay with them. On the book's publication in 1991, PW wrote, "Woodson's deep understanding of and concern for the role of black women in society is evident as she eloquently introduces the reader to teenage pregnancy, alternate lifestyles and adoption in her moving, powerful story."
