Josh Farrar - A Song for Bijou

Saturday, May 11, 2013 - 7:00pm

Life for Alex Schrader has never involved girls. He goes to an all-boys prep school and spends most of his time goofing around with his friends. But all that changes the first time he meets Bijou Doucet, a Haitian girl recently relocated to Brooklyn after the earthquake-and he is determined to win her heart. For Bijou, change is the only constant, and she's surprised every day by how different life is in America, especially when a boy asks her out. Alex quickly learns that there are rules when it comes to girls-both in Haitian culture and with his own friends. And Bijou soon learns that she doesn't have to let go of her roots to find joy in her new life.

Told in alternating viewpoints against the vibrant backdrop of Haitian-American culture, A Song for Bijou ($16.99) is Josh Farrar's heartwarming story of Alex and Bijou's first steps toward love.

Josh Farrar is the author of Rules to Rock By.
