Description

Jean Little frequently weaves poetry into the fabric of her many novels. The critically accliamed Hey World is a collection of short prose and poems, some of which first made their appearance in Look Through My Window and Kate. The bulk of them are printed here for the first time. With the same blend of sensitivity, insight and candor that has characterized her novels, these short pieces articulate a wide range of young adolescent concerns. “Kate” ponders the nature of love, war, birth, death, siblings, friendship, school, teachers, parents and, of course, members of the opposite sex.
