Patricia Morrison will be signing Shadow Girl at 3:00 pm.
Written by Patricia Morrison
Trade Paperback | Ages 9+ | 224 pages
The story of a resilient young girl who struggles as the daughter of an alcoholic father and an absentee mother. Left alone to fend for herself for days at a time, she is observed by a kind and compassionate saleswoman at the mall she retreats to every day after school to avoid going “home.” The saleswoman gains her trust and takes action into her own hands by reporting the girl’s situation to social services. She is placed in foster care, where she dreams of being reunited with her dad, despite the deprivations in her life with him. The relationship between the girl and her foster mother is painful, and the girl’s spirit disintegrates. Eventually, the saleswoman “adopts” the girl into her caring family, whose love and support enable her, finally, to believe in herself.

Rescuing the Children
The Story of the Kindertransport
Written by Deborah Hodge
Hardcover | Ages 10+ | 64 pages
“Filled with gripping personal biographies, this history of the famous 1939 rescue of 10,000 Jewish children during the Holocaust weaves together a general overview with the detailed memories of eight survivors…. Neither melodramatic nor sentimental, the simple, accessible prose reveals the historical realities … along with the heartbreak of saying good-bye and the fact that most of the rescued would never see their parents again. The spacious design features small historical photos and individual portraits on every double-page spread, as well as color paintings by artist-survivor Hans Jackson, who shows scenes of book burning, the horror of Kristallnacht, and much more…. Even with all the books out there about the Kindertransport, readers will grab this exemplary title for historical research and for personal reading.” – Starred Review, Booklist
