In this Newbery Honor novel, New York Times bestselling author Rita Williams-Garcia tells the story of three sisters who travel to Oakland, California, in 1968 to meet the mother who abandoned them. A strong option for summer reading—take this book along on a family road trip or enjoy it at home. This moving, funny novel won the Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction and the Coretta Scott King Award and was a National Book Award Finalist. Delphine, Vonetta, and Fern's story continues in P.S. Be Eleven and Gone Crazy in Alabama. Readers who enjoy Christopher Paul Curtis's The Watsons Go to Birmingham and Jacqueline Woodson’s Brown Girl Dreaming will find much to love in One Crazy Summer. Rita Williams-Garcia's books about Delphine, Vonetta, and Fern can also be read alongside nonfiction explorations of American history such as Jason Reynolds's and Ibram X. Kendi's books. In One Crazy Summer, eleven-year-old Delphine is like a mother to her two younger sisters, Vonetta and Fern. She's had to be, ever since their mother, Cecile, left them seven years ago for a radical new life in California. But when the sisters arrive from Brooklyn to spend the summer with their mother, Cecile is nothing like they imagined. While the girls hope to go to Disneyland and meet Tinker Bell, their mother sends them to a day camp run by the Black Panthers. Unexpectedly, Delphine, Vonetta, and Fern learn much about their family, their country, and themselves during one truly crazy summer. This novel was the first featured title for Marley D’s Reading Party, launched after the success of #1000BlackGirlBooks. Maria Russo, in a New York Times list of "great kids' books with diverse characters," called it "witty and original." "This vibrant and moving award-winning novel has heart to spare," commented Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich in her Brightly article "Knowing Our History to Build a Brighter Future: Books to Help Kids Understand the Fight for Racial Equality."

They learn about what the Black Panthers are trying to accomplish and all the good they do for the community. By the end of the summer, the Gaither sisters manage to reconnect with their mother and make lifelong friends.

When your world feels like it’s going crazy … the one thing you can count on is love. Jeremy is a big, burly, self-proclaimed redneck beta. He ’s not too happy with the way his life is going, but he doesn’t know where to look to find what he wants. But when he suddenly transitions into an omega one crazy night … and becomes pregnant … his life is turned upside down. Alex is an alpha who is very loyal to his Puerto Rican family. He works hard at their landscaping business and helps take care of his brother’s kids. When he finds Jeremy at the drive-in theater, in heat and surrounded by hungry alphas, he takes him home where he will be safe. But, as responsible as he is, Alex can’t control his animal urges when he comes into contact with Jeremy’s intoxicating scent. When he finds out he’s a father, Alex not only has to figure out how to provide for two families, but he has to convince Jeremy to keep the baby. Can Alex convince Jeremy that the little being growing inside him is meant to be? And that the love between the two of them and their family might just be what he’s been wanting all along? His Crazy Summer is an opposites attract romance of 38k words. It includes a feisty beta-turned-omega, some foul language, incredibly hot sex between two huge men, male pregnancy, and the kind of HEA with a sweet, cuddly baby you've come to expect from Xander Collins.

Food is a signifier of power for both adults and children, a sign of both inclusion and exclusion and of conformity and resistance. Many academic disciplines—from sociology to literary studies—have studied food and its function as a complex social discourse, and the wide variety of approaches to the topic provides multidisciplinary frames for understanding the construction and uses of food in all types of media, including children’s literature. Table Lands: Food in Children’s Literature is a survey of food’s function in children’s texts, showing how the sociocultural contexts of food reveal children’s agency. Authors Kara K. Keeling and Scott T. Pollard examine texts that vary from historical to contemporary, noncanonical to classics, and Anglo-American to multicultural traditions, including a variety of genres, formats, and audiences: realism, fantasy, cookbooks, picture books, chapter books, YA novels, and film. Table Lands offers a unified approach to studying food in a wide variety of texts for children. Spanning nearly 150 years of children’s literature, Keeling and Pollard’s analysis covers a selection of texts that show the omnipresence of food in children’s literature and culture and how they vary in representations of race, region, and class, due to the impact of these issues on food. Furthermore, they include not only classic children’s books, such as Winnie-the-Pooh, but recent award-winning multicultural novels as well as cookbooks and even one film, Pixar’s Ratatouille.
