Author Tony Medina drew from his own experiences growing up in the projects to create the story of DeShawn Williams. We meet DeShawn's grandmother, who helps him with his homework, and his cousin Tiffany, who shares in his laughter and adventures. We learn of his dreams - to be a rap star - and of his nightmares, including one in which the graffiti in his neighborhood comes alive. Beautifully illustrated by award-winning artist R. Gregory Christie, this book and its diverse cast of characters will charm readers of all backgrounds. Praise for The Palm of My Heart: "The real story here is the glorious art by picture-book newcomer Christie, who displays a fine-arts sensibility that is incorporated into his illustrations." - Kirkus Reviews
