Summary of The Other Side Summary of The Other Side Reviews for The Other Side An Excerpt from The Other Side
Clover's mom says it isn't safe to cross the fence that segregates their African-American side of town from the white side where Anna lives. But the two girls strike up a friendship, and get around the grown-ups' rules by sitting on top of the fence together.

With the addition of a brand-new author's note, this special edition celebrates the tenth anniversary of this classic book. As always, Woodson moves readers with her lyrical narrative, and E. B. Lewis's amazing talent shines in his gorgeous watercolor illustrations.

"Manages to plumb great depths with understated simplicity. . .Text and art work together beautifully." -School Library Journal, starred review
