Arilla Sun Down

Mass Market Paperback (Scholastic Paperbacks Oct. 1, 1995) , 0th Edition
The classic young adult novel from master storyteller Virginia Hamilton, now repackaged with striking new art from acclaimed illustrator Kadir Nelson.

Arilla never asks for anything. Not even a true identity. It's hard to remember who you are when you never really knew yourself in the first place. But her brother, Jack Sun Run, doesn't have that problem. He has intelligence, beauty, and grace. He has decided who he is, and he shines as brightly as the sun.

Arilla knows she walks in her brother's shadow. That's why he calls her "Moon." But everything turns around one day, and it is Jack who needs her help. That's when Arilla realizes the sun must always set to make way for the moon.
