Preview of Morning Girl Summary:

Morning Girl, published in 1992, is a double first-person narrative told by Morning Girl, so-named because she is up before anyone else in the family, and Star Boy, her younger brother, who prefers the night and the stars to daytime. Alternate chapters give us Morning Girl's perceptions and Star Boy's. These children are growing up on an un-named Caribbean island, part of a loving family and extended tribe. The story is largely a coming-of-age tale for both Morning Girl and her brother as they cope with a family tragedy, a hurricane, with learning their places in the larger community, and finally with the arrival of white strangers.
