WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE IS NOT WHO YOU ARE
That's what Laura Ebony found out during a two week forced stay with her grandmother. Although she wants to be a fashion model and popular, she's more of an outsider, called Larda by her classmates and the popular girls. She thought all that would changed this year until she finds out that her class will be going on a field trip to her family's "slave shack". A shack to Laura's mind that has nothing but bad memories and now the whole class will know about her family's horrible past.
The Laura Line by Crystal Allen turns in another engaging coming of age story weaving in history, genealogy, self esteem and even baseball. For readers in grades 5th -8th.
