The Teen Diversity Book Club: When Stars Are Scattered

TEENS! Join a monthly book group that celebrates diversity through great literature! Created for readers in grades 8 -12, the group will meet monthly via Zoom.  The second book in the discussion series is When Stars Are Scattered by Victoria Jamieson and Omar Mohamed.  When Stars Are Scattered is a National Book Award Finalist; honors also include the Schneider Family Book Award Middle School Honor, YALSA Great Graphic Novel for Teens, YALSA Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers, YALSA Excellence in Nonfiction Nominee, Amazon Best Children’s Book of 2020, New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book, TIME Best Book of the Year, School Library Journal Best Book of 2020, Kirkus Best Children’s Book of 2020, NYPL Best Book for Kids, NPR's Book Concierge Pick, Jane Addams Children's Book Award Finalist, and a 2021 Children’s Africana Book Award Honor Book.

Omar Mohamed was only four years old when he fled to a Kenyan refugee camp from war-torn Somalia with only his little brother in tow. Accompanied with Victoria Jamieson’s brilliant graphic artwork, When Stars Are Scattered is a remarkable true account of Omar’s childhood growing up in the camp, raising his little brother and dreaming of a better life for them both. A heartbreaking, hopeful, eye-opening must-read for all ages.

Omar and his younger brother, Hassan, have spent most of their lives in Dadaab, a refugee camp in Kenya. Life is hard there: never enough food, achingly dull, and without access to the medical care Omar knows his nonverbal brother needs. So when Omar has the opportunity to go to school, he knows it might be a chance to change their future . . . but it would also mean leaving his brother, the only family member he has left, every day.  Heartbreak, hope, and gentle humor exist together in this graphic novel about a childhood spent waiting, and a young man who is able to create a sense of family and home in the most difficult of settings.

There are a limited amount of FREE copies of the book; register and recieve yours!  A Zoom link will be emailed to you prior to the first meeting.

The Teen Diversity Book Club: Genesis Begins Again

TEENS! Join a monthly book group that celebrates diversity through great literature! Created for readers in grades 8-12, the group will meet monthly via Zoom.  The next book in the discussion series is Genesis Begins Again by Alicia D. Williams.  Genesis Begins Again is a Newbery and Kirkus Prize honor winner, a William C. Morris Award finalist, and the winner of the Coretta Scott King - John Steptoe Award for New Talent.  

There are ninety-six reasons why thirteen-year-old Genesis dislikes herself. She knows the exact number because she keeps a list:
-Because her family is always being put out of their house.
-Because her dad has a gambling problem. And maybe a drinking problem too.
-Because Genesis knows this is all her fault.
-Because she wasn’t born looking like Mama.
-Because she is too black.

Genesis is determined to fix her family, and she’s willing to try anything to do so…even if it means harming herself in the process. But when Genesis starts to find a thing or two she actually likes about herself, she discovers that changing her own attitude is the first step in helping change others. 

There are a limited amount of FREE copies of the book; register and recieve yours!  A Zoom link will be emailed to you prior to the first meeting.
