Description
An imaginative young girl struggles to make sense of her mother's mysterious disappearance, in this novel set in 1975, against the backdrop of school busing, desegregation, and early feminism.



Conversation Starters from ReadingGroupChoices.com

  1. Up From the Blue features a frame story (a story within a story). How do the chapters about grown Tillie enrich the story of 8-year-old Tillie? How would the novel be different if the author had only written about young Tillie?
