Simon P. Clark: Tell The Story To Its End Read this from a galley I got at ALA. It was a very interesting new fairy tale. I have just found that the author has written some companion tales to go with the book that can be found here; http://www.erentales.com/
It's 1969, and the Apollo 11 mission is getting ready to go to the moon. But for half-black, half-Japanese Mimi, moving to a predominantly white Vermont town is enough to make her feel alien. She struggles to fit in with her classmates, even as she fights for her right to stand out by entering science competitions and joining Shop Class. And even though teachers and neighbors balk at her mixed-race family and her refusals to conform, Mimi’s dreams never fade.
