About Retaliation:

The content is relevant and multicultural students can relate to the situations and dilemmas of the characters. – School Library Journal

Selected as a Top Ten Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers–American Library Association

This book is a roller coaster ride, one event spilling over into another, but there is never a dull moment. I read it in one sitting, and imagine many teens will do the same. – Bay Area Bibliophile

Everyday, violence and danger run rampant on the streets of Southeast, DC, and on one seemingly quiet day, the Odom family finds its world destroyed when the baby girl of the family, seventeen-year-old Tashera is brutally attacked by a group of high school girls.

The attack—borne from jealousy—triggers hate, revenge, and the need for justice in the hearts of everyone in the community.

Tashera, a girl with sparkling qualities – she’s laid back, she keeps to herself, she’s intelligent and beautiful, she’s the hair stylist of the high school clique, and most importantly, she stays out of people’s business – finds herself trying to rein in her growing anger at being an innocent bystander as she worries about how this event will affect her family.

I hope you enter to win!

Peace & Love,
