Lisa Moore Ramée: “A Good Kind of Trouble” Reading and Book Signing

Lisa Moore Ramée: "A Good Kind of Trouble" Reading and Book Signing

Alibi Bookshop’s first event for middle grade readers!

Please join us for a very special afternoon as we welcome Lisa Moore Ramée, author of the starred reviewed “A Good Kind of Trouble,” reading and in conversation with David William Hill. We’re delighted to have her here — invite your friends of all ages!

Twelve-year-old Shayla is allergic to trouble. All she wants to do is to follow the rules. (Oh, and she’d also like to make it through seventh grade with her best friendships intact, learn to run track, and have a cute boy see past her giant forehead.) But in junior high, it’s like all the rules have changed. Now she’s suddenly questioning who her best friends are and some people at school are saying she’s not black enough. Wait, what? Shay’s sister, Hana, is involved in Black Lives Matter, but Shay doesn’t think that’s for her. After experiencing a powerful protest, though, Shay decides some rules are worth breaking. She starts wearing an armband to school in support of the Black Lives movement. Soon everyone is taking sides. And she is given an ultimatum. Shay is scared to do the wrong thing (and even more scared to do the right thing), but if she doesn’t face her fear, she’ll be forever tripping over the next hurdle. Now that’s trouble, for real.
