"Oree can go to the tellin' for this family," his grandmother said thoughtfully. "He do have the gift his grandpa left him. " Jonas almost choked on a piece of biscuit. No one called him Oree anymore except for his grandmother-and Jonas knew that she meant serious business when she used his Gullah name. If his grandmother decided it was so, Jonas would have to represent the family at the local tellin'-even if he didn't want to. Grandfather had been the best storyteller on Sapelo Island. And Jonas isn't sure that he inherited the family "gift for de lie." On the night of the big tellin', Jonas finally discovers the true meaning of his grandfather's special gift. What does happen on that fateful night surprises everyone! With warm, quiet humor, Kim Siegelson weaves a touching tale about a young boyfinding his place in Sapelo Island's Gullah community.
