Just Prepare To Die Rachel's investigation is about to reveal answers--but at a price she never thought to pay. Now she's become the target of a rage honed by years of jealousy and madness. And a murderer is ready to show her just how vicious the truth can be. . .

"When it comes to justice, there is no easy way to get it. You can't sugarcoat it. You have to take a stand and say, ‘This is not right.'" – Claudette Colvin On March 2, 1955, an impassioned teenager, fed up with the daily injustices of Jim Crow segregation, refused to give her seat to a white woman on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Instead of being celebrated as Rosa Parks would be just nine months later, fifteen-year-old Claudette Colvin found herself shunned by her classmates and dismissed by community leaders. Undaunted, a year later she dared to challenge segregation again as a key plaintiff in Browder v. Gayle, the landmark case that struck down the segregation laws of Montgomery and swept away the legal underpinnings of the Jim Crow South. Based on extensive interviews with Claudette Colvin and many others, Phillip Hoose presents the first in-depth account of an important yet largely unknown civil rights figure, skillfully weaving her dramatic story into the fabric of the historic Montgomery bus boycott and court case that would change the course of American history. Claudette Colvin is the 2009 National Book Award Winner for Young People's Literature and a 2010 Newbery Honor Book.
This is a story of how innocence can be shattered by ignorance, how faith is enduring in the presence of callous disbelief and how right is proven true in the end. This story is an American story and a human story. It is my story and yours. This is a book to read. Maya Angelou A rare and beautiful achievement, this honest book holds a true mirror up to a southern city and some of its best and not yet best residents John Ehle Jo Anne North Goetz grew up in the racially segregated Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina and discovered her love of teaching in a one-room schoolhouse there. Darryl Hunt was born in the projects of East Winston, never knew his father, and his mother was a drunk who couldn't raise him. He learned about love from a grandfather he adored. Goetz and Hunt became friends during the year she taught him in the sixth grade at Mebane Elementary School. Seven years later, in 1984, when she read the news story of his arrest in Winston-Salem, North Carolina for the rape and murder of a white newspaper copy editor, Deborah Sykes, Goetz faced her own fear of reprisal in a racially torn community and took the witness stand as Hunt's only character witness. For the next 20 years after Hunt's conviction, she stood by his side in a struggle for freedom and justice that divided a community. This is a beautiful story, and I clearly heard Jo Anne's voice reading it to me. Leigh Somerville McMillan has captured her point of view, her voice, her faith. Mark Rabil, Attorney for Darryl Hunt Leigh Somerville McMillan gives us an intimate portrait of Jo Anne Goetz and her friendship with a man wrongly accused of murder a story of race, justice and redemption. Phoebe Zerwick, State Editor The Winston-Salem Journal It is a rare moment in life when people come together, not only to bring out the best in each other, but the best in humanity.
This landmark volume is the first to bring together leading scholarship on children’s and young adult literature from three intersecting disciplines: Education, English, and Library and Information Science. Distinguished by its multidisciplinary approach, it describes and analyzes the different aspects of literary reading, texts, and contexts to illuminate how the book is transformed within and across different academic figurations of reading and interpreting children’s literature. Part one considers perspectives on readers and reading literature in home, school, library, and community settings. Part two introduces analytic frames for studying young adult novels, picturebooks, indigenous literature, graphic novels, and other genres. Chapters include commentary on literary experiences and creative production from renowned authors and illustrators. Part three focuses on the social contexts of literary study, with chapters on censorship, awards, marketing, and literary museums. The singular contribution of this Handbook is to lay the groundwork for colleagues across disciplines to redraw the map of their separately figured worlds, thus to enlarge the scope of scholarship and dialogue as well as push ahead into uncharted territory.
