  • You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson
    Liz Lighty has always believed she's too black, too poor, too awkward to shine in her small, rich, prom-obsessed midwestern town. But it's okay -- Liz has a plan that will get her out of Campbell, Indiana, forever: attend the uber-elite Pennington College, play in their world-famous orchestra, and become a doctor. But when the financial aid she was counting on unexpectedly falls through, Liz's plans come crashing down . . . until she's reminded of her school's scholarship for prom king and queen.

Print copies are available to request through our Library Catalog.
Digital copies, both eBook and eAudio are available from OverDrive/Libby and are always available from Hoopla.
