Mare’s War

Tanita S. Davis (A)

List Price: $16.99  (Hardcover - Family / Grandmother and Granddaughters / Travel  / Self - Discovery - 2009)

Ashay’s Price: $16.99

Meet Mare, a grandmother with flair and a fascinating past.

Description: Octavia and Tali are dreading the road trip their parents are forcing them to take with their grandmother over the summer. After all, Mare isn’t your typical grandmother. She drives a red sports car, wears stiletto shoes, flippy wigs, and push-up bras, and insists that she’s too young to be called Grandma. But somewhere on the road, Octavia and Tali discover there’s more to Mare than what you see. She was once a willful teenager who escaped her less-than-perfect life in the deep South and lied about her age to join the African American battalion of the Women’s Army Corps during World War II.  (352 pgs)  Ages 12 +

Ashay says, “This sounds like a great book.  Congratulations to Ms Davis on her Coretta Scott King Award.  On their journey with their grand mother the girls learn about being a black woman in a man’s world and finding strength, courage and independence.  Must have for the classroom and library. “
