Out of My Mind
By Sharon M. Draper "Get ready to meet a girl whose voice you'll never, ever forget. Eleven year-old Melody has a photographic memory. Her head is like a video camera that is always recording. Always. And there's no delete button. She's the smartest kid in her whole school -- but NO ONE knows it. Most people -- her teachers and doctors included -- don't think she's capable of learning, and up until recently her school days consisted of listening to the same preschool-level alphabet lessons again and again and again. If only she could speak up, if only she could tell people what she thinks and knows . . . but she can't, because Melody can't talk. She can't walk. She can't write. Being stuck inside her head is making Melody go out of her mind -- that is, until she discovers something that will allow her to speak for the first time ever. At last Melody has a voice . . . but not everyone around her is ready to hear it." © 2010 Paperback 295 pages

Romiette and Julio
By Sharon M. Draper "When Romiette Cappelle meets Julio Montague, she feels as though she has met the soul mate who can rescue her from her recurring nightmare about fire and water. But like the Shakespearean characters whose names echo theirs, Romiette and Julio discover that not everyone approves of their budding romance. In their case, it is because Romiette is African-American and Julio is Hispanic, and the Devildogs, a dangerous local gang, violently oppose their interracial relationship." © 2001 Paperback 320 pages

The Road to Paris
By Nikki Grimes "Home is a painful word to spell. Paris has been sent from one mean foster family to another, never feeling welcome, never fitting in. Having her brother by her side made it tolerable, but now the system has ripped them apart. When Paris moves in with the Lincolns, she expects the worst. This family is different, though. With daily acts of love and inclusion, the Lincolns slowly earn her trust and worm their way into her heart. She misses her brother, of course. And as a biracial girl in a predominantly white town, there are constant reminders of her outsider status. Still, maybe, just maybe, Paris has finally found a place she can call home. But the minute this possibility seems within reach, Paris is asked to make a difficult decision about where she truly belongs." © 2006 Paperback 153 pages

We Beat the Street: How A Friendship Pact Led to Success
By Drs. Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, and Rameck Hunt, with Sharon M. Draper "Growing up in street-tough Newark, New Jersey, was not an easy experience.

Some Friend
By Marie Bradby "Finding a friend isn't easy. Especially when there aren't many kids age eleven in your neighborhood. Being a friend is even harder. In Pearl's neighborhood Lenore is everyone's friend of choice. She has her hair straightened and curled at a real beauty shop, her own pink phone, and a canopy bed. The most Pearl hopes for is to be included as one of Lenore's followers. "Then outcast Artemesia comes into Pearl's life. Artemesia is everything Pearl dreams of being -- a dancer and an artist. But when Lenore makes it clear she can't stand Artemesia, Pearl does the worst thing possible. And she still hasn't got a friend. " Or has she?" © 2004 Paperback 245 pages

Fast Sam, Cool Clyde, and Stuff
By Walter Dean Myers "When Francis (shortly to be known as Stuff) moved to 116th Street, he didn't know anyone, but that didn't last long. Cool Clyde, Fast Sam, Gloria, BB, Angel and Maria, Chalky and Carnation Charley - they grew close that one eventful year, and nothing was ever like it again. That was the year that modern science got them all in jail; the year Stuff fell in love and was unfaithful; the year Cool Clyde and Fast Sam won the dance contest - almost. "In this funny and energetic book, Walter Dean Myers brings to life with warmth and good humor an unusual group of boys and girls, who together grow to know the meaning of friendship." © 1988 paperback 190 pages
