Obviously, this list is not comprehensive, but I went looking for a couple books today--only to discover that (alas!) they had gone astray. Since we all know that "missing" status is one indicator of popularity, I figured this was worth sharing:
Suitcase, by Mildred Pitts Walter.
The Moves Make the Man, by Bruce Brooks.
The Skin I'm In, by Sharon Flake.
The Greatest: Muhammad Ali, by Walter Dean Myers.
Don't Let the Pigeons Drive the Bus, by Mo Willems.
I assume some of them were on summer reading lists--like The Greatest. But still.
And of course, the book Hold My Gold: the White Girls' Guide to the Hip-Hop World remains M.I.A., apparently never to be replaced. Sigh. Now how will I learn the correct translation of the following phrase?
- 1 "Yo, less twiss a la."
A. "Man, do I love Boca Burgers!"
B. "I'd like a little less foam in my Grande skim latte."
C. "Is that frozen yogurt fat-free?"
D. "Hey! Let's roll a marijuana cigarette!"
