Paperback. As new.

National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson’s timely middle-grade novel celebrates the healing that can occur when a group of students share their stories.

It all starts when six kids are sent to a room for a weekly chat—by themselves, with no adults to listen in. There, in the place they dub the ARTT room (“A Room To Talk”), they discover it’s safe to open up. A father has recently gone missing, and that starts a conversation about other things they’re facing, from racial profiling and fears of deportation to a deep yearning for family history and a sense of belonging. When they’re together, they can express the feelings and fears they usually hide from the world. And together, they can grow braver and more ready for the rest of their lives.
