message 1: by Gillian (new)

Gillian Ross | 17 comments This is one of the titles we have by this author I have discovered this year. Her books are set in America and cover the topics of racial prejudice and discrimination set in quite gripping historical fiction. I particularly like her characters and the resourceful and determined way they try to make things better. I even have our Principal reading these books. Other titles include 'The paper cowboy' (remember the 'communist witch hunt' propaganda of Senator McCarthy) - this is my favourite title with a wonderful boy protagonist and 'The Lions of Little Rock' - set around the time of the integration vs segregation of schools. Mature readers of historical fiction will enjoy these books as will your teachers.

I'm not familiar with this book Gillian but I've just checked my catalogue and I see we have "Hanna's Suitcase" by the same author. I will check it out, thanks!

Jane, Hanna's Suitcase is by Karen Levine not Kristin.
