POC Reading Challenge

I am late in joining the POC reading challenge but this has been a crazy month and I wanted to complete the comment challenge first. As a general rule, I don't do book challenges because I stink at them, but this was was too important to pass up.

I'm joining the POC challenge at Level 4, reading 10 - 12 books. Right now, these are the books I'm planning on choosing from:

Tyrell – Coe Booth

First Daughter: Extreme American Makeover – Matali Perkins

Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Freedom – Phillip Hoose

The Rock and the River – Kekla Magoon

Sunrise over Fallujah – Walter Dean Myers

Rain is Not My Indian Name – Cynthia Leitich Smith

The Afterlife – Gary Soto

Jumped – Rita Williams-Garcia

After Tupac and D Foster – Jacqueline Woodson

Ten Things I Hate About Me – Randa Abdel-Fattah

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian – Sherman Alexie

Return to Sender – Julia Alvarez
