Middle Grade: Family Life
Families come in all shapes, sizes, temperaments, and configurations. Novels that depict family life offer a glimpse into the beauty of everyday life, the struggles and joys of familial relationships, and the deep effects of strong intergenerational relationships. The basis of family is connection, love, and support. These Native characters all have varying types of families, from divorced parents with little to no contact with one another to blended families to intergenerational households. Blended families, intergenerational families, found family—each valuable, each treasured, each important to represent.
