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.

Don’t Look Back: A Memoir

Don’t Look Back: A Memoir of War, Survival- and My Journey from Sudan to America by Achut Deng and Keely Hutton will be released October 11th. Her story describes the war in her country in the early 1990s and her near-death escape to a refugee camp where disease and starvation almost took her life. Deng had a podcast in 2020. Now a mother of three living in the United States, Deng hopes her story will connect with others.
