Garvey’s Choice


Garvey’s Choice
by Nikki Grimes (Author)

Booktalk: Garvey’s father has always wanted Garvey to be athletic, but Garvey is interested in astronomy, science fiction, reading–anything but sports. Feeling like a failure, he comforts himself with food. Garvey is kind, funny, smart, a loyal friend, and he is also overweight, teased by bullies, and lonely. When his only friend encourages him to join the school chorus, Garvey’s life changes. The chorus finds a new soloist in Garvey, and through chorus, Garvey finds a way to accept himself, and a way to finally reach his distant father–by speaking the language of music instead of the language of sports.

Snippet:
ASSEMBLY
Single file, we march
on stage for our recital.
Louder than a zoo
the kids watching point and laugh,
hyenas in human skin.
