Giveaway: Black Dove, White Raven by Elizabeth Wein

Our YA Diversity Book Club pick for March is Elizabeth Wein’s hotly anticipated Black Dove, White Raven. I received two copies of the book, so I’m sharing with one of you!

About the book:

Emilia and Teo’s lives changed in a fiery, terrifying instant when a bird strike brought down the plane their stunt pilot mothers were flying. Teo’s mother died immediately, but Em’s survived, determined to raise Teo according to his late mother’s wishes-in a place where he won’t be discriminated against because of the color of his skin. But in 1930s America, a white woman raising a black adoptive son alongside a white daughter is too often seen as a threat.

Seeking a home where her children won’t be held back by ethnicity or gender, Rhoda brings Em and Teo to Ethiopia, and all three fall in love with the beautiful, peaceful country. But that peace is shattered by the threat of war with Italy, and teenage Em and Teo are drawn into the conflict. Will their devotion to their country, its culture and people, and each other be their downfall or their salvation?

In the tradition of her award-winning and bestselling Code Name Verity, Elizabeth Wein brings us another thrilling and deeply affecting novel that explores the bonds of friendship, the resilience of young pilots, and the strength of the human spirit.

    This book looks really good, I just saw it yesterday. Her Code Name Verity series was fantastic! My favorite diversity book, I really have a couple, I really enjoyed Crazy by Linda Phillips and My Life After Now by Jessica Verdi. Thanks for sharing your books.

    I’ve been trying to talk up Code name Verity and Rose under fire whenever I have a chance. I’m not a big fan of suspense/thriller novels and so these are on the end of my comfort scale but they are so good and so well-written that I had to finish them. My current favorite diversity YA book is The Stranger by Sherwood Smith and Rachel Manija Brown. It’s the first book in a post-apocalyptic series with a wide variety of genders and people of color in lots of roles.

    I believe that Black Dove White Raven by Elizabeth Wein, will help open others eyes on different life styles and how things were many years ago and how people can learn and adapt to changes, and the story line of when Rhoda ,moves to Ethiopia to raise Em and Teo is a eye opener to the way they are accepted and challenges the meet

    I totally loved Code Name Verity. I’m a big fan of the author Jacqueline Carey and she recommended Code Name Verity in a talk she gave. I jumped right into it and it made me cry and fall in love all at the same time.
