Carolrhoda LAB Pérez’s historical fiction explores the devastating consequences of racism in the context of the worst school disaster in U.S. history. Set in New London, Texas in 1936 when oil drilling created new jobs, commerce, and a new school, we see a community reckoning with a legacy of tripartite segregation among White, Black, and Mexican families. When seventeen-year old Naomi arrives to this community from San Antonio, we feel her pride in being Mexican, her commitment to protect her younger twin brother and sister, Cari and Beto, and her fears as she encounters racist and sexual violence from school peers, shopkeepers, church goers, and her step-father, Henry, who is White.

Ghost by Jason Reynolds, Hardcover | Barnes & Noble® Ghost CHECK THIS OUT. This dude named Andrew Dahl holds the world record for blowing up the most balloons . . . with his nose. Yeah. That’s true. “Let me guess, sunflower seeds,” Mr. “Lemme guess, one dollar.” After that, I continue on my slow-motion journey, pausing again only when I get to the bus stop. About the sunflower seeds. My dad used to eat sunflower seeds too. But let me tell you, my dad was lying. It was three years ago when my dad lost it. “We gotta go,” she said, yanking the covers off the bed. Next thing I knew, she was dragging me down the hallway, my feet tripping over themselves. “Don’t make me do this, Terri!” My mom and I kept running, down the staircase into the street, breaking into the darkness with death chasing behind us. I haven’t seen my dad since.
