    Pinned (EBK)

    by Sharon G. Flake

    Autumn doesn't care that Adonis can't walk and has to use a wheelchair. She's fallen hard for the brilliant manager of her wrestling team—the only problem is he seems to hate her. Maybe it's because she's so outgoing and has so many friends while he is shy. Or maybe it's because she has a learning disability and struggles to read in class.

    What Autumn doesn't know is that Adonis dreams about her almost every night and is wrestling with his own fears that a girl like her will never really like a boy like him. He can't walk. He can't dance. Yet Adonis has a secret even bigger than his disability—and he knows someone like Autumn can help him heal.

    This effortless, realistic story raises many questions about how kids think about each other and themselves.

About This Book

Thirteen-year-old Raspberry Hill is starved for money. She will do just about anything legal to get her hands on the almighty dollar. Memories of being homeless, sleeping in the streets, and eating from handouts keep Raspberry's eye on the only prize that matters to her: cold, hard cash.

But even money can't answer the questions that keep Raspberry awake at night. Will she and Momma ever move out of the projects? What did Ja'nae do with the two hundred bucks Raspberry loaned her? And what's really going on with Momma and that rich doctor?

This unforgettable novel will keep you glued to each and every page. Bank on it.
