Draper is a New York Times bestselling author who has received the Coretta Scott King Award for both COPPER SUN and FORGED BY FIRE.

Book: Stella lives in the segregated South--in Bumblebee, North Carolina. Some stores she can go into, and some stores she can't. Some folks are right pleasant and others are a lot less so. To Stella, it sort of evens out, and heck, the Klan hasn't bothered them for years. But one late night, later than she should ever be up, much less wandering around outside, Stella and her little brother see something they're never supposed to see, something that is the first flicker of change to come, unwelcome change by any stretch of the imagination. As Stella's community--her world--is upended, she decides to fight fire with fire. And she learns that ashes don't necessarily signify an end.
