All This and Heaven Too

Heaven; The First Part Last; Sweet, Hereafter

For Ages: 12 and up
Survival. Change. Hope. Three award-winning stories of three very different teens from Heaven, Ohio, are now available together in one beloved collection.

In Heaven, Marley has always relied on her parents, until a lie she’s been told all her life threatens to break apart her family.

In The First Part Last, Bobby is sixteen. He’s not ready to be a father, but when his girlfriend finds out she’s pregnant, he has to learn what it really means to be a man.

And in Sweet, Hereafter, Shoogy isolates herself from the people who love her. Finding Curtis changes all that, but when he’s called back to Iraq, she might lose him forever.

These compelling portrayals, from Printz winner and three-time Coretta Scott King Award-winner Angela Johnson, depict the realities, both bittersweet and inspirational, of growing up.
