Yolonda's GeniusYolonda is smart tough and big for her age No one messes with her Yolonda's little brother Andrew doesn't talk much and he can't. Yolanda can see things about her brother Andrew that others can't She can see past the fact that he can't read and struggles in school She knows that he is not just making noise on the harmonica that he carries; he is making music Andrew takes everyday noises and sights and creates music to match them on his harmonica Yolanda believes he is a prodigy a genius But she can't get anyone else to see it too When the family visits her aunt in Chicago they attend the great Blues music festival There Yolanda sees a chance for Andrew to be discovered Maybe then others will see his worthI enjoyed Andrew as a character and could really feel his struggles with reading How many kids are out there just like Andrew that can't understand the black suiggles on a paper as writing but when something like music is put in front of them it all becomes clear The parts about Andrew and the skate park with the drug dealers held my interest and made me anxious for him But then they dropped out of sight and that part felt unresolvedYolanda's character was bossy and annoying There were very few ualities about her that were enjoyable to read about The only part that interested me with Yolanda was her interest in the boy at the skate park but that was dropped in the middle of the book That almost made her likable I really only kept reading the whole book to find out what happens to AndrewThis was a Newbery honor book but as is the case with many of the Newbery selections it was not a book that will interest most average kids It really felt like a book that was written so that teachers could push it onto kids as have to read not enjoy reading
