Quick Overview:

New York Times bestselling author Nikki Grimes presents the story of Mary “Mister” Rudine, a teenage girl whose life tips sideways after one mistake: falling for Trey. Now forced to hide not only her shame but a growing secret, Mister tries to find solace in the story of another unwed teenage mother, one who shares her first name.


Mary Rudine, called Mister by almost everyone, has attended church and sung in the choir for as long as she can remember. But then she meets Trey. His long lashes and smooth words make her question everything, and one mistake leaves her hiding a growing secret.

Another Mary is excited about her upcoming wedding, and has done everything according to Jewish law. So when an angel appears and tells her—a virgin—she’ll give birth, Mary can’t help but feel confused, and soon finds herself struggling with the realities of God’s blessing.

While feeling abandoned, Mister is drawn to Mary’s story, and through reading begins to understand the future laid before her.

“This novel in poetry looks clearly at both teen pregnancy and struggles with faith. Mister is exceptionally well characterized ... The language is intimate and immediate.” —Kirkus Reviews
