From Booklist
Although Elizabeth, a young Chinese girl, is secure in the love of her adoptive Caucasian American family, she still has questions. Why, if China is such a big country, wasn't there room for all the babies? Didn't her mother love her? Such questions surface in games with her younger Chinese sister, in loving give-and-take with her American mother, and in hurt feelings after seeing a Chinese mother and daughter at the playground. Decorated in floral patterns and colored in lush, velvety hues, the thickly stroked, realistic artwork expands on the text while heightening the emotions it conveys. Elizabeth's misgivings are met head-on by her adoptive mother's reassurance, love, and thoughtful responses. The mother's tender support not only reassures Elizabeth but will also benefit other adoptees, especially those from Third...

Book Description
Eden Crowell was the kind of thug only a mother could mourn. One drunken brawl too many left him clinically dead in a hospital ward--and left his long-suffering father with one last chance to make something of his son. Within twenty-four hours, his vital organs are transplanted into deserving cases the length and breadth of the country. Cases like blind Karen Lockhart. For the first time in her life she can see--thanks to Eden's eyes. But her longed-for dream of sight brings nightmares of its own, as horrific murders plague her while she sleeps. No one will tell her the identity of the donor whose death brought colour to her empty world. Empty as the grave that once held the violated remains of Eden Crowell... --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-This story, based on true events, tells how Mable Jean's simple question inspired a community of African Americans in post-World War II Mississippi to beat the odds. Walking five miles to school is hard enough, but enduring stormy weather and the teasing of the white children who get to ride on a bus is even worse. The child asks her father and her teacher why there is no bus for her school and if they know anyone who could get one. Then she asks her Cousin Smith-and gets results. After a lot of hard work and cooperation by the community, a school bus for black children is in operation. While it is not equal to the vehicles provided by the county, it is a remarkable labor of love. Though the oil paintings are hazy (like memories), the effects are remarkably strong; for example, the faces of the white...

Book Description
He was an aspiring basketball star. She, the resident scholar. Shawn and Harley Randall had grown close over the years, mostly because of the way their father's job tended to drag them all over the continent. But this time it was different, and no one can understand why. Even ocean-front property that boasted a breathtaking view of Pacific sunrises and sunsets couldn't lift the smothering confusion and anxiety that troubled both of them, nor did Jack Randall's short fuse help. Somehow the brother and sister pair must find a way to adjust to this seemingly perfect world while sorting through the pages of adolescence to find peace again, with a little help from their friends.
