Leaving Atlanta

Leaving Atlanta by Tayari Jones Book Summary

Beautifully evocative, this novel portrays one of the darkest tragedies in American history through the eyes of three unforgettable children.

From the author of An American Marriage, An Oprah's Book Club 2018 Selection

It was the end of summer, a summer during the two-year nightmare in which Atlanta's African-American children were vanishing and twenty-nine would be found murdered by 1982. Here fifth-grade classmates Tasha Baxter, Rodney Green, and Octavia Harrison will discover back-to-school means facing everyday challenges in a new world of safety lessons, terrified parents, and constant fear.

The moving story of their struggle to grow up-and survive- shimmers with the piercing, ineffable quality of childhood, as it captures all the hurts and little wins, the all-too-sudden changes, and the merciless, outside forces that can sweep the young into adulthood and forever shape their lives.

- Seeing the world through the eyes of a child5 star

Amazing book. The author brilliantly tells the story of horrible real life events through the eyes of children. It’s an amazing story that contrasts what we always hear about the innocence of childhood with the brutal realities of the world. The author’s use of different narrative voices is seamless and really makes you feel like you know these children, which makes you feel for them even more. A must-read especially for anyone who works with children.
