Book Details

Four hope-filled tales of children from diverse backgrounds facing personal challenges and traumas. Each story is a celebration of perseverance, grit, and resilience. There is 7-year-old Kenya, who struggles with anxiety. Permanently scarred from an accident, the stares and sneers she endures shatter her self-worth. There is Lulu, who falls into depression following the death of her beloved Grandma. Will she ever be happy again? Abbas is a new arrival to America. Adjusting to school proves difficult because he can't concentrate or sit still. He wonders if he's just a "bad" boy. And then there is Javier, the captain of the soccer team. At school, he's a star. At home, he's a punching bag. Every character's journey toward healing and acceptance is a reminder to young readers that they, too, are strong and special, even if they sometimes feel scared, vulnerable, or alone.
