I´ve lost so much. Family. My home. Pride. My identity. And I couldn´t help but feel it´s entirely my fault. There is no one else to blame. I´ve quickly learned that being the White Raven isn´t easy. The dead are restless and angry, and I don´t know the first thing about being a banshee. Those around me will get hurt. To keep them safe, I must endure painful decisions. Zane Hunter, the ultra-bad boy who stole my heart, is one of those difficult decisions. Our souls are synchronized, making us a compatible duo. Too bad I´m engaged to his brother. My forbidden relationship with Zane is complicated. Deep down I want more than what my duty demands of me, what my family´s past has shaped for me. Our problematic relationship only increases in tenfold when a surprise I never saw coming shows up in Raven Hallow, changing the game. I thought I had nothing left to lose...I was wrong. Yeah, being a banshee isn´t all that it´s cracked up to be. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Caitlin Kelly. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/057217/bk_acx0_057217_sample.mp3.

Finalist for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize ´´In all of the literature addressing education, race, poverty, and criminal justice, there has been nothing quite like Reading with Patrick.” (The Atlantic)A memoir of the life-changing friendship between an idealistic young teacher and her gifted student, jailed for murder in the Mississippi Delta Recently graduated from Harvard University, Michelle Kuo arrived in the rural town of Helena, Arkansas, as a Teach for America volunteer, bursting with optimism and drive. But she soon encountered the jarring realities of life in one of the poorest counties in America, still disabled by the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. In this stirring memoir, Kuo, the child of Taiwanese immigrants, shares the story of her complicated but rewarding mentorship of one student, Patrick Browning, and his remarkable literary and personal awakening. Convinced she can make a difference in the lives of her teenage students, Michelle Kuo puts her heart into her work, using quiet reading time and guided writing to foster a sense of self in students left behind by a broken school system. Though Michelle loses some students to truancy and even gun violence, she is inspired by some, such as Patrick. Fifteen and in the eighth grade, Patrick begins to thrive under Michelle´s exacting attention. However, after two years of teaching, Michelle feels pressure from her parents and the draw of opportunities outside the Delta and leaves Arkansas to attend law school. Then, on the eve of her law-school graduation, Michelle learns that Patrick has been jailed for murder. Feeling that she left the Delta prematurely and determined to fix her mistake, Michelle returns to Helena and resumes Patrick´s education - even as he sits in a jail cell awaiting trial. Every day for the next seven months, they pore over classic novels, poems, and works of history. Little by little Patrick grows into a confident, 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michelle Kuo.

If you really want to understand Jim Crow - what it was and how African Americans rose up to defeat it - you should start by visiting Mobile Street in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, the heart of the historic black downtown. William Sturkey introduces us to both old-timers and newcomers who arrived in search of economic opportunities promised by the railroads, sawmills, and factories of the New South. He also takes us across town and inside the homes of white Hattiesburgers to show how their lives were shaped by the changing fortunes of the Jim Crow South. Sturkey reveals the stories behind those who struggled to uphold their southern ´´way of life´´ and those who fought to tear it down - from William Faulkner´s great-grandfather, a Confederate veteran who was the inspiration for the enigmatic character John Sartoris, to black leader Vernon Dahmer, whose killers were the first white men ever convicted of murdering a civil rights activist in Mississippi. Through it all, Hattiesburg traces the story of the Smith family across multiple generations, from Turner and Mamie Smith, who fled a life of sharecropping to find opportunity in town, to Hammond and Charles Smith, in whose family pharmacy Medgar Evers and his colleagues planned their strategy to give blacks the vote. 1.
