Nominated for a National Book Award in 1971, this moving tale is the story of Buddy, a 15-year-old boy whose world is spinning out of control. He meets Angela, whose angry parents accuse her of being ''wild''. When life falls apart for Buddy and his father, and when Angela is attacked at home, they take action to create their own way of staying alive in Brooklyn. In the process, the two find refuge in one another and learn that love is real and necessary. With an introduction by Sapphire, the acclaimed author of Push, which has been made into the film Precious.

"A novel that's at once tough and romantic." "New York Times" "There must be bridges if we are to reach our young. "His Own Where" promises to be one." "New York Times Book Review"This June Jordan treasure is a rare piece of fiction from one of America's most vital poets and political essayistsa tender story of young love in the face of generational opposition, a modern-day Romeo and Juliet that sings and sways." Walter Mosley, author of "Cinnamon Kiss"Jordan makes us think of Akhmatova, of Neruda. She is among the bravest of us, the most outraged. She feels for all. She is the universal poet. Alice Walker, author of "The Color Purple"Whatever her theme or mode, June Jordan continually delineates the conditions of survivalof the body, and mind, and the heart. Adrienne Rich, author of "Diving into the Wreck"In political journalism that cuts like razors, in essays that blast the darkness of confusion with relentless light; in poetry that looks as closely into lilac buds as into death s mouth . . . she has comforted, explained, described, wrestled with, taught and made us laugh out loud before we wept. . . . I am talking about a span of forty years of tireless activism coupled with and fueled by flawless art. Toni Morrison, author of "The Bluest Eye"""A novel that's at once tough and romantic." --New York Times
