CHRISTMAS IN CANAAN
New York : HarperCollins,
IL 5-8, RL 6.1
as simple as black and white. Right? Life in Canaan looks like
that on the surface. It's the beginning of the 1960's and racial
integration is not something that the small Texas town has embraced yet.
DJ is white and a tough farm boy. Rodney is black and a bright aspiring
writer. When these two tangle, the punishment will change them forever.
DJ's father comes up with a plan to have the boys spend time in each other's
homes learning to look beyond skin color. Can this plan possibly
bring the boys together? Or can they just learn to tolerate each
other? Find out in Christmas in Canaan.
