Buckwheat’s Journey…

We Wear the Mask

Synopsis:



Set in Chicago, Buckwheat re-enters the 21st century as a doll.  When Buckwheat is placed inside the display case, he clashes with black, classy female dolls because of social and cultural differences.  The aura in the display case shifts and becomes animated, tense, mysterious and simply a nightmare.  Dark shadows of rejection and isolation shroud Buckwheat.  Something is amiss. The house is in disarray, and everyone is drawn into the unknown.   The journey into the light begins.

Sandra Reed's new book, Buckwheat's Journey is very colorful and imaginative, loaded with surprises, and overstuffed with fun and humor.  A BIG THUMBS UP!  And on a more personal note, I'd love to see it in class rooms across young America because of its great and tasteful approach to presenting and dealing with difficult social issues that impact us all.  _ Zelan Bonn

    cartierbraceletlove General Petraeus, just lost my respect. Could it be that Petraeus has some involvement with Bill & Hilary’s Hit List, the permanent one.
