Summary

Bloomsbury presents Some Places More Than Others by Renée Watson, read by Bahni Turpin.

From Newbery Honor- and Coretta Scott King Author Award-winning, New York Times best-selling author Renée Watson comes a heartwarming and inspiring middle-grade novel about finding deep roots and exploring the past, the present and the places that make us who we are.  

All Amara wants for her birthday is to visit her father’s family in New York City - Harlem, to be exact. She can’t wait to finally meet her Grandpa Earl and cousins in person and to stay in the brownstone where her father grew up. Maybe this will help her understand her family - and herself - in new way.

But New York City is not exactly what Amara thought it would be. It’s crowded, with confusing subways and suffocating sidewalks, and her father is too busy with work to spend time with her and too angry to spend time with Grandpa Earl. As she explores, asks questions and learns more and more about Harlem and about her father and his family history, she realizes how, in some ways more than others, she connects with him, her home and her family.
