Fatherhood, football & turning forty ~ Chris Crowe

For the strength of you ~ Chris Crowe
From the Outside Looking in: Short Stories for LDS Teenagers ~ Chris Crowe (Editor) (Paperback - December 1998) Fifteen popular YA authors (like Louise Plummer, A.E. Cannon, Jack Weyland, Lael Littke, Paul Pitts, Donald Smurthwaite) address feelings of teen isolation with thought-provoking and delightful stories designed to help. Using an engaging variety of voices and plots, they explore alienation from an LDS perspective and do so with a healthy dose of humor, sports, relationships, family, and faith. No matter what the circumstances, these stories are sure to uplift and reassure.
Getting Away with Murder (Jane Addams Honor Book (Awards)) ~ Chris Crowe (Hardcover - May 26, 2003) Grade 7 Up-"The Emmett Till case was not the sole cause of the civil rights movement, but it was the final indignity that caused the flood of outrage to overflow the dam of racial injustice." Mainstream history has all but forgotten about this 14-year-old African American from Chicago who was murdered by two white men in Mississippi for making "ugly remarks" to one of their wives. The men were acquitted, and several months later, they were interviewed by Look magazine and publicly confessed to the crime. The event galvanized black Americans, and even many of the whites who had supported the defendants were appalled at their national confession. Four months after Till was killed, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus, and the wheels of the civil rights movement were set in motion...
Mississippi Trial, 1955 ~ Chris Crowe (Paperback - November 24, 2003) Other Editions: Hardcover | Paperback ~ Grade 6-8-While visiting relatives in Mississippi, Emmett Till, 14, spoke "ugly" to a white woman and was subsequently tortured and murdered. Two men were arrested and tried for this heinous crime, but in spite of substantial evidence, were found not guilty. Crowe has woven the plot of his novel around these historical events. Hiram, the fictional main character, had lived with his grandparents in Mississippi as a child. Now 16, he returns to visit his aging grandfather, where he meets Emmett Till. He also renews a childhood acquaintance with R.C. Rydell, a redneck bully.

Jane Addams Honor Book Awards
Hot Day on Abbott Avenue (Jane Addams Honor Book (Awards)) by Karen English, Javaka Steptoe (Illustrator) (Hardcover - May 24, 2004) PreSchool-Grade 3–Innovative illustrations add depth and texture to an evocative text. It's a sunny summer day, but close friends Kishi and Renée are on the outs and stubbornly refuse to play together. Their tempers flare right along with the temperature, but eventually the sweltering midday heat subsides and both are lured from their porches by a vigorous game of double Dutch. By the time the ice-cream man turns the corner, all is forgiven and forgotten.

When My Name Was Keoko (Jane Addams Honor Book (Awards)) by Linda Sue Park (Hardcover - March 18, 2002) Other Editions: School & Library Binding | Paperback | Unknown Binding ~ A brother and sister alternate as narrators in Newbery Medalist Park's (A Single Shard) well-constructed novel, which takes place from 1940-1945 in Japanese-occupied Korea. The Japanese government forbids the Korean language to be spoken and the country's flag to be flown, and even forces Korean families like Tae-yul and Sun-hee's to change their names (Sun-hee becomes Keoko). Through the use of the shifting narrators, Park subtly points up the differences between male and female roles in Korean society; and the father's process of choosing the family's Japanese name speaks volumes about his strength and intelligence.Ages 9-12
