Behind the Colored Sign

This triumphant memoir follows Samuel L. Chatam from his childhood in the hot cotton fields of a fully segregated small town in 1930s and 1940s Texas to his distinguished professorship in a major urban California college. Chatam's grandmother, uncle, and great-grandmother were at the center of his young life, and their vision and direction were instrumental to Chatam's many life achievements. As a child, Chatam internalized his grandmother's conviction that he grow up and become a schoolteacher. Her seed of education took root and became his life's work. Chatam delivers a vivid, absorbing account of his schooling in a one-room, dilapidated bungalow; bus rides; small-town politics; and the white superintendent who refused new textbooks to Negro students. But he never allowed the bitter slings and arrows of bigotry and segregation to deter him from aiming high and getting there. From a country farmhouse with a leaky roof and apple-box seating to his current California gated community featuring million dollar estates, Chatam has always maintained his gratitude for family, unyielding work ethic, enterprising spirit, and devotion to education-and a commitment to encouraging his students and his own children to experience big dreams and equipping them with the tools to make those dreams come true.

Breaking the Ice

Figure skating is Kaitlin’s passion, but she lands on thin ice after a meltdown in this funny, touching story. Because when you fall down, you have to pick yourself up—even if it’s in front of judges and a crowd. Kaitlin has always dreamed of being a champion figure skater, and she’s given up a lot to pursue her passion. But after she has a totally uncharacteristic tantrum at a major competition, she’s dropped by both her coach and her prestigious skating club. When no other club will have her, she’s forced to join the ridiculed and run-down Fallton Club, jokingly referred to as the “Fall Down Club.” At first Kaitlin thinks this is a complete disaster, but after meeting some of the other skaters—including a boy who happens to have the most perfect hair she’s ever seen—she realizes it might not actually be so bad. Yet learning a whole new program right before regionals is a huge challenge, and when she realizes that all the other area skaters target Fallton for pranks, she begins to wonder if joining the Fall Down Club has any upside.

New York Times bestselling author Susan Krinard continues the thrilling urban fantasy series that began with Mist in Black Ice. Centuries ago, all was lost in the Last Battle when the Norse gods and goddesses went to war.
