American Book Award winner Nancy Rawles pens a moving story about Huck Finn's slave friend Jim, told through the eyes of the wife Jim was forced to leave behind. Sadie shares her story of loss with her granddaughter as they weave Sadie's most treasured items-her mother's knife, a piece of a bowl from Africa, a piece of Jim's hat found when he was thought to be dead-into a quilt. "My Jim is a compelling, eloquently written novel that can stand on its own merits beside the great works that inspired it."-San Francisco Chronicle

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This novel celebrates family life at the same time it reminds readers that separation doesn’t necessarily mean rejection. Rawles’s first effort is sure to please fiction lovers.” Library Journal
My Jim is a love story. But it is also a vivid portrayal of Jim’s other life–harsh at times, poignant at others. Even young adults unfamiliar with Huckleberry Finn’s companion will find Rawles’s tale moving and real. The author creates a heartbreaking world where farewells to husbands, wives, and children are common.” School Library Journal
