Those Bones Are Not My Child, by Toni Cade Bambara. The story unfolds with the disappearance of a 12-year-old boy and his mother’s tireless search to find him. Throughout the pages of the novel, Bambara enveloped me into the mindset of a community turned upside-down by violence and grief. From beginning to end, her words simultaneously offered me a heartrending portrayal of a family altered by tragedy and an unflinching excavation of America’s past. It's a compelling and urgent story about love, justice and loss. – RD Reader Helen Schulz
