After Tupac and D Foster

by: Jacqueline Woodson

Publisher: Speak (2008)


The day D Foster enters Neeka and her best friend�s lives, the world opens up for them. Suddenly they�re keenly aware of things beyond their block in Queens, things that are happening in the world�like the shooting of Tupac Shakur�and in search of their Big Purpose in life. When�all too soon�D�s mom swoops in to reclaim her, and Tupac dies, they are left with a sense of how quickly things can change and how even all-too-brief connections can touch deeply.
