The Blossoming Universe of Violet Diamond

Feeling uplifted by that gorgeous cover photo? This family tale is sweet like a full-body smile. Violet feels like a brown leaf on a pile of snow. She’s never known the black side of her family. Her mom is white, and her dad (who was black) died before she was born, leaving Violet alone in a family of blondes. Even at school, nearly everyone is white. Violet is tired of people asking if she’s adopted. She’s eleven now, and it’s time to explore her lost black side. If she can trace her dad’s African-American family, will the puzzle pieces of her heritage fall into place? The winning story of a smart and plucky girl with something very important to find: herself. Cheer her on every step of the way.
