Excerpt


Growing up in a family of five as an energetic preteen, Carmen Browne is determined to live her life to please God. Now, as an eleven-year-old, Carmen begins to face the uncharted waters of adolescence. She discovers that her changing moods and growing body bring a brand new set of challenges to her life. Even in the midst of situations like being at a sleepover where the host shows an inappropriate movie, or being surrounded by classmates gossiping about her family, Carmen knows she must take a stand for what's right. As she learns to trust God to work all things out for good, Carmen learns a lot about herself, too: being popular doesn't guarantee you true friends, being honest up front saves a lot of hurt, and sometimes self-confidence is just bossiness in disguise. In this fifth and final volume of the Carmen Browne series, our courageous heroine finds out that growing up isn't a fairy tale, but as she walks through her own life story, she can truly be content living as God's Happy Princess.

Excerpt


More than a work of fiction, this is a story culled from Ms. Taylor's own family's life and it stands as an important record of an African-American experience from our country's complicated and not-so-distant past. Though fictionalized, the novel draws great strength from a foundation of real-life events - and yet, remarkably, its honest portrayal of harsh truths have lead some to seek to remove the book from the library shelves and school reading lists. Ms. Taylor eloquently addresses this important issue in her inspiring new forward for the anniversary edition. Translated into scores of languages, this monumental novel remains as meaningful and universal as when it was first published in 1976. Recommended for ages 10 and up. The 1977 Newbery Medal winner.

Excerpt


J.T. Pace was a black sharecropper's son whose ingenuity and determination enabled him to build a successful life. But J.T.'s ability to overcome adversity is only part of this story. "Dust of the Earth" is also about his pain. Success did not fill the emptiness in his heart, nor did it erase the shame he felt in hiding from others what he considered a humiliating secret: He could not read. This, then, is the story of J.T.'s journey, a journey that eventually led him to Christ and created in him a burning desire that could not be quenched until he could read the Word of God for himself.
