This week brings controversy as these books divulge into the world of homophobia.
Introduces controversial teen Jazz Jennings who is one of the youngest and most prominent voices in the national discussion about gender identity. At the age of five, Jazz transitioned to life as a girl, with the support of her parents. A year later, her parents allowed her to share her incredible journey in her first Barbara Walters interview, aired at a time when the public was much less knowledgeable or accepting of the transgender community. This groundbreaking interview was followed over the years by other high-profile interviews, a documentary, the launch of her YouTube channel, a picture book, and her own reality TV series—I Am Jazz—making her one of the most recognizable activists for transgender teens, children, and adults.

Johnny Get Your Gun
Narrated by Dion Graham.
This novel is also known as Death for a Playmate and it is the third book in the Virgil Tibbs mystery series, that began with In the Heat of the Night.
In this story, a nine-year-old boy who is lonely after a family move, shoots an older child that has stolen something from him, thus igniting the militant blacks and racist whites of 1960s Pasadena, into a black-white conflict involving riots and brutalities.
Here, childhood has gone awry, racism that ought to shock does not, and political conflicts only adds fuel to the fire.
On Two Feet and Wings
Narrated by the author Abbas Kazerooni
Is the story of a 10 year old boy who is forced to leave his war-torn home to escape Tehran. The Iran-Iraq War is at its bloodiest and the ayatollahs, or rulers of Iran, have reduced the age of recruitment into the army. If Abbas doesn’t leave soon he will have to go to war and he is too young to die.
This terrifying story brings to light the strange and often frightening city of Istanbul that Abbas has had to grow up fast, while living there.
But when he’s living alone for twelve weeks in a rundown hotel, he needs to learn to live by his wits and watch his back. Will he ever get his dream visa to escape to England?
These well narrated stories are about the courage of small boys and they are as gripping as any novel.

The Devil’s Highway
Narrated by the Author himself, this is a true story of a group of men who attempted to cross the Mexican border, into the desert of southern Arizona through the deadliest region of the continent, known as “The Devil’s Highway”. Sadly, more than half of them never made it across.
This book has been a best seller and finalist in the Pulitzer Prize. It has also been proclaimed as a Modern American Classic.
The next book:
Is about a songwriter, Blade. He never asked for a life of the rich and famous. In fact, he’d give anything not to be the son of Rutherford Morrison, who is a washed-up rock star and drug addict with delusions of a comeback. In reality, the only thing Blade and Rutherford have in common is the music that lives inside them. But when a long-held family secret comes to light, the music disappears. In its place is a letter, one that could bring Blade the freedom and love he’s been searching for, or leave him feeling even more adrift and deluded.
