Book and Activities: Lies We Tell Ourselves
It’s 1959. The battle for civil rights is raging. And it’s Sarah’s first day of school as one of the first black students at previously all-white Jefferson High. No one wants Sarah there. Not the Governor. Not the teachers. And certainly not the students. A truly sparkling debut with broad appeal to a young adult/adult crossover audience, tackling powerful issues of race and sexuality.
