Tillmon County Fire
Author Pamela Ehrenberg is not afraid to tackle big topics. Her first book, Ethan, Suspended, explored issues of race relations (see our February 2008 podcast for a discussion of Ethan, Suspended). Her new book, Tillmon County Fire, examines the many forms that prejudice can take, using the voices of teens who are gay, Jewish, adopted, autistic, abused, or marginalized in other ways. Amazingly, Pam's books are far from preachy. They are compellingly readable, and her characters are very real people. They are brave books, and I highly recommend that you read them.
