I just read... The Blossoming Universe of Violet Diamond by Brenda Woods. Eleven year-old Violet has a loving family, good friends, and now a kitten but something is missing. Her African-American father died before her birth and the questions that biracial Violet gets when out with her white mother are annoying. But when the opportunity arises to meet her dad’s mom for the first time, Violet swings in to action. -- Emma
