The Season

The season

 

Title: The Season
Author: Jonah Lisa Dyer and Stephen Dyer
Series: n/a
Recommended for: 8th grade and up
Pages: 344
Call Number/Link:  Teen Fiction Dyer, J. 

Synopsis:     “When her mother enters her and her twin sister as debutantes for this year’s deb season in Dallas, soccer star Megan McKnight is furious. She has no interest the dress-filled life of a socialite deb, but her season turns out to be one full of twists and turns – and more than one dashing suitor!”–  

I really liked this book, it was fun, full of exciting events and you would never have guessed the ending.  A fun read for upper middle school, high school and college.  Previous readers have said is related it to pride and prejudice meets tomboy and the texas tradition.

Juneteenth For Mazie

juneteenthTitle: Juneteenth – For Mazie
Author: Floyd Cooper

Series: N/A

Recommended for: Grades 1-2

Pages: 40 pages
Call Number/Link:  E Cooper, F.

Synopsis: Mazie is ready to celebrate liberty. She is ready to celebrate freedom. She is ready to celebrate a great day in American history ― the day her ancestors were no longer slaves. Mazie remembers the struggles and the triumph, as she gets ready to celebrate Juneteenth.

Recommendation– I think this a great read aloud book during Black History month.  I did not know about this holiday myself and so I think it would be very interesting to young children.  The graphics are muted and really pull across the history that they are trying to convey.  So a must read for school teachers and preschool to educate the young about a little known holiday.
