Family Tree: #3
Summary: In 1977 in Princeton, Dana’s daughter seven-year-old Francie is struggling to keep her dyslexia a secret from her teachers and family, and even the thought of high school and college is part of the remote and unattainable future.
Summary: Fefa struggles with words. She has word blindness, or dyslexia, and the doctor says she will never read or write. But her mother gives Fefa a blank book filled with clean white pages. Soon Fefa starts to sprinkle words across the pages of her wild book. She lets her words sprout like seedlings, shaky at first, then growing stronger and surer with each new day. And when her family is threatened, it is what Fefa has learned from her wild book that saves them. In this vibrant novel in verse, award-winning poet Margarita Engle paints a glowing portrait of her grandmother as a young girl.
