Sally | 2 comments One of my new favorites is "Crossing Bok Chitto: A Choctaw Tale of Friendship and Freedom." It received a positive review from Debbie Reese. http://americanindiansinchildrenslite....

I'm also enjoying reading books by Joseph Bruchac.

bjneary | 5 comments Sally, I read it but our seniors were given a list of 30 contemporary YA titles and Code Talkers was a choice and one student enjoyed it so much, he read it twice.

bjneary | 5 comments Another one I just finished and LOVED is Choices by Katrina Burchett. A great, edgy read about teens facing the challenges of sex in their everyday lives.

bjneary | 5 comments What did you think of Liar (read my review on Goodreads) I was disappointed. Thanks for your new titles, I have Marcelo, I will move that up to the top of the list and the others sound great. Now I am reading the 3rd book in the Sharon Draper trilogy Battle for Jericho, November Blues and the third one is Just Another Hero. Enjoying it so far. I liked the Death of Jayson Porter by Jaimee Adoff too. I just finished the Torres Brothers by Coert Vorhees, that was great! For 2010, I will be reading more, I joined a Social Justice Reading Challenge and there is alot of good books featuring POC for YA so I am excited. Here is the address if interested
