Book of the Day: Dreamland Burning

Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham

Dreamland BurningIf you are curious about the 1921 Tulsa Massacre after hearing about it on the news or seeing HBO's Watchmen series this past weekend, the book Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham is a compelling read. "When Rowan finds a skeleton on her family's property, investigating the brutal, century-old murder leads to painful discoveries about the past. Alternating chapters tell the story of William, another teen grappling with the racial firestorm leading up to the 1921 Tulsa race riot, providing some clues to the mystery." Note that this book is best for more mature readers, about age 13 and up. Read a review on Kirkus for more information
