Also, I like Angela Johnson's writing and the book got a Coretta Scott King award. Sadly, I wasn't impressed by this particular story. I remember what it had felt like to find out my parents weren't who I'd thought well I expected a lot more from this book. Having been in a situation similar to Marley's, I felt I'd be able to really appreciate and understand the story.

Her children's picture books are simple yet poetic stories about African-American families, friendships, and common childhood experiences such as moving. Her books for older children revolve around similar themes but also explore deeper issues such as teen pregnancy and divorce.

Angela Johnson takes us back to Heaven, Ohio in this bittersweet tale of first love found and lost.

Twelve-year-old Mike - short for Michaela - loves the ocean. The sights, sounds, and smells of her coastal home are embedded in her very soul. And it's true that Scotty's friends, Misha and Falcone, and her brother, Keone, make life delicious. Angela Johnson takes us back to Heaven, Ohio in this bittersweet tale of first love found and lost.

Wonderful every one should read

The book is about a girl who lives in a city in Ohio called Heaven. She finds out things about herself she didn't even know before. I would recommend this book to anyone who feels like it. In case you're wondering, it has nothing to do with religion.

Heaven:
The Coretta Award given to this book was indeed well deserved. It is refreshing to see the main character as a person, who happens to be an African American, instead of the traditional books with plots that stem from the fact that they are black. What an underlining, yet powerful message Angela Johnson is sending. The simplicity of this book tells a greater story; Marley the fourteen year old is seemingly apart of a perfect family, in a perfect small town, with perfect neighbors. Does it really matter that there is one small blunder amongst the family? Does blood trump experience? Does holding off a secret ALWAYS mean deceit? These are all questions Marley spends ample time pondering once she finds out her parents aren't her blood parents. We are rewarded to share this back and forth reasoning, resentment, acceptance time period with Marley. This book may be of someone else's account, but it makes you think of your thoughts that would roam in your mind if you were to find out you were adopted. Read it, and develop the characters through the sense of yourself. Hmmmm... would I declare this town, Heaven, a living Hell? Or is life in Heaven, OH, truth and all-- heaven-like

Marley is a fourteen year old girl who lives with her parents in Heaven, Ohio. The book discusses on an average day what she does. She sometimes go to the ma suprette to wire money to her uncle, she spends time with her friends Shoggy and Bobby (this character later comes in Johnson book called first part last). Marley narration through out the book let you realize her family is not a bad one. Her world comes tumbling down when she finds out that the people she has called mom and pops all her life are really her aunt and uncle and the uncle that she has been wiring money too is her real father. The book has many little chapters with different headings that focus on the specific title in each. It shows Marley emotions going up and down on the reality of her world and how she eventually deals with seeing her real dad coming to visit. A great read!

HEAVEN, the 1999 Coretta Scott King Award book, is a first-person narrative centered on the idea or theme that just as some truths in life may bring a sense of sorrow and loss, they can also turn those painful feelings and emotion into real joy, hope, and acceptance. When main character, Marley, discovers that she's adopted, knowing what to do with that truth becomes the real issue of the story. For 12 years, Marley has lived in Heaven, OH with two doting parents, a quirky but lovable brother, good friends and neighbors that she adores. Now, it seems that her life up to this point has been one big fat lie! Even though she lacks trust in her adoptive family now that she knows the truth, it will be their continued love and support which wins her over and helps her to finally find the answers she so desperately needs to know about her life.
I believe what makes this book so interesting to read is that it presents Marley's family, filled with deception and lies, as paradise. While the most troubled family in the story is "picture perfect" and free of deceit. The plot is idyllic and often dreamy with punches of reality mixed in as everyone's deceptions unravel. Even though this story is not as compelling as Ms. Johnson's 1994 Coretta Scott Award winning book, TONING THE SWEEP, it is still a moving story that handles the topic of adoption with graceful sensitivity.
In ths book there is a girl named Marley. She is 12 years old and she lives in Ohio. When she was about two her mom, Christine died and her dad didn't want her anymore. Then she went to go live with her aunt and uncle. Marley new them as ma and pa. She loved them alot. Later in live when she was about 13 now.
