Aleutian Sparrow by Karen Hesse
Book DescriptionIn June 1942, seven months after attacking Pearl Harbor, the Japanese navy invaded Alaska's Aleutian Islands. For nine thousand years the Aleut people had lived and thrived on these treeless, windswept lands. Within days of the first attack, the entire native population living west of Unimak Island was gathered up and evacuated to relocation centers in the dense forests of Alaska's Southeast. With resilience, compassion, and humor, the Aleuts responded to the sorrows of upheaval and dislocation. This is the story of Vera, a young Aleut caught up in the turmoil of war. It chronicles her struggles to survive and to keep community and heritage intact despite harsh conditions in an alien environment.

My Thumb, Hardback (August 2016)
I love my thumb, I truly do. It tastes of pears and carrot stew. It's like a hug, an "I love you." My mom hoped in a year or two there'd be some things that I outgrew, and some I have, but never you. Parents worry themselves silly over thumb sucking, but really, what's the big deal? It's tasty. lt's comforting. But so what?
Safekeeping, Paperback (January 2016)
The news is filled with images of vigilante groups, frenzied looting, and police raids. It seems as if all hell has broken loose. Coming back from volunteering abroad, Radley just wants to get home to Vermont. When her plane lands in New Hampshire, her parents, who always come, day or night, no matter when or where she lands-aren't there.
Brooklyn Bridge, Paperback / softback (November 2011)
From Newbery Medalist Hesse comes her first novel in more than five years--a powerfully evocative and accessible family story, set in Brooklyn at the turn of the 20th century, by turns serious, funny, and with a touch of magical realism. Includes a full-color spread. Illustrations.
