The Girl Who Fell From the Sky Named a Top Book for Kwanzaa

I was super excited to see that The Girl Who Fell From the Sky made this list by Zola Books: 7 African American Literary Characters that Exemplify Kwanzaa Principles. "In honor of Kwanzaa, Zola selected seven female African-American characters we felt best exemplified each principle . . . Kujichagulia (self-determination) means that you have the ability to define yourself, speak for yourself, and create for yourself. This is something Rachel struggled to learn as a child of mixed race. After tragedy strikes, she moves in with her African-American grandmother and experiences life in a mostly black community. While the world demands that she be seen as either black or white, Rachel reflects on where she has come from to find her true self."  Read about the other characters mentioned here.
