Crossing Jordan by Adrian Fogelin

There are seven more days until the drawing for the books: The Writer's Adventure by Sexton Burke and Crossing Jordan by Adrian Fogelin.

Crossing Jordan was Adrian's first book for young readers. Since then she has written many more. Some of the books use the same characters.

Crossing Jordan won:
  • VOYA top Shelf Fiction for Middle School Readers
  • ALA (YALSA) Best Books for Young Adults
  • IRA Notable Books for a Global Society (Honor Book)
Crossing Jordan is about the unlikely friendship between a white girl and a black girl.
They become neighbors and share the love of running, but Cass's father has decided he doesn't want to be neighborly.
This book shows how even grownups can grow and change in a story.
The book is set in Tallahassee, Fl, where Adrian lives.
