The Earth Breaks In Colors

'“Two pre-teen girls form a fast and important interracial friendship, despite the growing hostility around them. A timely, tender, and unforgettable look at what love does—and what hate can destroy.”­ —Caroline Leavitt, The New York Times bestselling author of Is This Tomorrow and Pictures of You   “This is gorgeous writing; a heartbreaking, acutely observed portrait of two Los Angeles families, united by friendship and tragedy and the delicate journeys they make to try to keep toppling into the cracks and canyons of the constantly fracturing paradise that is Southern California.” —David Rambo   “There is a whole genre of literature in which the innocence of childhood is touched by the realities of the grown-up world—Carson McCullers’ The Member of the Wedding, Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye, come to mind. Patti Davis—in language that falls beguilingly on the reader’s ear like a perfect whisper yet somehow does so in a writer’s voice that is both robust and tender—tells us her version of this age-old story and makes it young again.” —Kevin Sessums, Mississippi Sissy and I Left it On the Mountain   “Rarely in recent American life have we so needed inspiring reminders of a closeness that transcends color, is tested by the cruelty of society and the complications of family—and yet miraculously provides renewal, after all. The friendship of young Odelia and Whisper in Patti Davis’s The Earth Breaks In Colors is an evocative paen to an imperfect world made whole by resilience and trust. A poetic, haunting—and, importantly, healing—novel.” —Sheila Weller, Girls Like Us and The News Sorority'
