The three sisters from "One Crazy Summer" have come home, and P.S. Be Eleven picks up right where the first book left off. Now Delphine, the oldest, and our narrator, along with Vonetta and Fern, are back with their father and grandmother (Big Ma) in New York. Their father is a loving but no-nonsense kind of man. Big Ma is old fashioned, and always worried about the girls making "a grand Negro spectacle of themselves" as she is constantly concerned about what everyone - especially white people - think of them. Their uncle Darnell returns from Vietnam, but as you would expect, he is changed by the wartime experience. Delphine's 6th grade teacher is from Zambia. He challenges her in ways she never expected to be challenged. The girls discover the wonders of The Jackson Five, and Delphine longs to attend the 6th grade Valentine's Dance. All of these subjects flow smoothly from one to another, weaving in and out masterfully. A splendid coming-of-age story, every bit as good as One Crazy Summer. It surely is. ( )

RGG: The characters are so wonderful. Very middle-grade, which maybe why the foreshadowing is so obvious. A lovely sequel. Reading Interest: 10-12.

Starting right where One Crazy Summer left off, Delphine and her sisters are on their way back to their home in Brooklyn. Still excited after their adventures at the summer camp run by the Black Panthers, now Delphine, Vonetta and Fern, have to live with their Pa, who has a new girlfriend, and his mother, Big Ma, who has a much more conservative take on how they should be acting and in the world than their mother did. Delphine is starting sixth grade, wants to be grown up and in some cases is required to look out for her sisters, but as her mother keeps reminding her in her letters, "P.S. Be eleven."

A lot is going on in this book, and the synopsis I gave doesn't really do it justice. It was fun to spend more time with the Gaither sisters as they discover a love for the Jackson Five and see how they deal with the more serious matters of their father's love life and their uncle's return from Vietnam. The ending felt a little abrupt to me - I went back a page or two to make sure I hadn't missed anything - but I enjoyed the ride and will look forward to reading the final book in the trilogy. ( )

Loved this book. I love Delphine's voice and her point of view throughout these books. She is worldly and innocent at the same time. The Gaither family is so real. ( )

Rita Williams-Garcia's "One Crazy Summer" is among my all-time favorites. I'm far from alone: a constellation of awards and honors gleams on its cover.
****
Now comes the sequel, "P.S. Be Eleven," and it had me anxious. How could a second book perform the same magic? A few pages in, I stopped worrying.
 
Delphine and her sisters return to Brooklyn from visiting their estranged mother, Cecile, a poet who sent them off every day to a camp run by the Black Panthers in Williams-Garcia’s Newbery Honor–winning One Crazy Summer.
