Priscilla and the Hollyhocks by Anne Broyles

Priscilla is a slave in the Big House. The hollyhocks her mother planted by the cow pond are all Priscilla has left to remember her by. When Master dies, Priscilla is sold to a Cherokee family. Another plantation, same life. Based on a true story, Priscilla and the Hollyhocks follows Priscilla from her early years on a Southern plantation to her forced march along the Trail of Tears to the chance encounter that leads to her freedom. On her journey from slave to free woman, Priscilla carries something precious with her: hollyhock seeds… and hope.

The Soul of a Butterfly by Tia Capers

A beautiful collection of affectionate, serene, joyous, motivational, and lively poems created especially for you. Signed copy by the author!

Somewhere in the Darkness by Walter Dean Myers

Jimmy hasn’t seen his father in nine years. But one day he comes back — on the run from the law. Together, the two of them travel across the country — where Jimmy’s dad will find the man who can exonerate him of the crime for which he was convicted. Along the way, Jimmy discovers a lot about his father and himself — and that while things can’t always be fixed, sometimes they can be understood and forgiven.

A teenage boy accompanies his father, who has recently escaped from prison, on a trip that turns out to be an, often painful, time of discovery for them both.
