Onna RIsing

by Rei Kimura

With money and freedom, a growing pool of young, well-educated and ambitious Japanese professional women are no longer submissive, demure extensions of their menfolk. They are ready to enjoy life, and with power and position four women (onna) have formed a strong supportive bond. Their friendship has withstood romantic conflicts, the fast-paced, glitzy life of Tokyo, trials of the workplace and the insulting 'ainoko' label given to one of the four. Now sordid secrets from the past have emboldened a blackmailer, threatening the very foundation of the friends' bond. Read More...

Edible Bones

by Unoma Azuah

In Edible Bones, Nigerian-born award winning author, Unoma Azuah skillfully captures a dramatic and revealing picture of a complicated African immigrant’s life in America.

Kaito works as a security guard at the American Embassy in Lagos. He deals with hundreds of hopeful Nigerian visa applicants, daily. Barely a third of the crowds, who line up outside of the embassy before dawn each day, will actually be called to the service desk, and of those, most are told, “Denied!”

Kaito, however, gets lucky; his application for a visitor’s visa is approved. He departs for the US, eager to fulfill the American dream of his media-driven imagination, where every house is a castle and every American life replete with luxurious cars, designer clothes, and widescreen TVs. Edible Bones follows his journey as an undocumented African immigrant in an unwelcoming American urban square and chronicles the distance between his grand expectations and his ensuing formidable fate.

What does a black, a Chinese, an Italian and a Puerto Rican Bronx teen have in common?—A thirst for excitement! They get their adventure and more when they set out to explore a cave in their neighborhood.

After falling down a ledge, the teens find that they have time-travelled three centuries into the future–in the middle of a war between tribes. Fortunately, one tribe accepts them.

The teenagers soon find that they have a unique and thrilling advantage in the conflict. They know the land, and the tribes, who had lost most modern technology, do not.

by Olive Peart

Throwing children of different races together will not automatically foster friendships and deep connections. It takes effort to create multiculturalism awareness. This teen novel helps to initiate discussions on diversity, stereotyping and privilege. Same age, same height, same grade—they could have been identical twins, but they were not. Yet they lived in the same imperfect world with overwhelming family problems. Greg’s father had walked out after striking his mother. Steve’s father refused to leave after repeatedly abusing his mother. Each boy, in his own way, was begging for help. They lived in different homes. They had different personalities.  One was black and the other was white and they had switched! Read More...
