Buddy is alone in the world, until he meets Angela. He likes her coolness. Angela likes the solid look of Buddy, although she's heard he has a bad reputation. When he sees Angela's mother strike her, he wants to get her out of harm's way and they begin to make their escape. At only fifteen years old, they have little to count on but the love they find together.
When His Own Where was first published in 1971, it gained both praise and notoriety. A finalist for the National Book Award, it was considered controversial for being written entirely in Black English, exactly how people speak. This contemporary classic is introduced by bestselling author Sapphire, who writes about what is real and necessary about June Jordan, and this rediscovered gem.
