Door of No Return

Kwame Alexander has a new novel in verse out that is a planned book one of a trilogy. Always a favorite among the middle-school crowd, Alexander’s latest deviates from his sports-themed subjects to African history and the 1800’s. The setting is Ghana and Kofi (the main character) is living under British colonialism. We get to know Kofi and his family as well as a less-explored vein of slavery. Alexander is skilled at capturing his reader enough to look forward to the second installment.
