If things hadn't changed, Charlie wouldn't have been arrested and sent to Rahway Correctional. Ty'ree would have gone to college instead of having to work full-time to support them. And Lafayette wouldn't have all of these questions in his head: Why did their parents have to die? When did Charlie turn into such a stranger? And how are the three of them going to make it through when so much seems to be set against them? With Miracle's Boys, the acclaimed Jacqueline Woodson scores another triumph.
"This compelling novel is . . . reminiscent of S. E. Hinton's The Outsiders and That Was Then, This Is Now." (The Horn Book)
"Readers will be caught up in this searing and gritty story . . . An involving novel about a family struggling to remain intact in spite of tremendous obstacles." (Kirkus Reviews)
