The Reappearance of Sam Webber
Jonathon Scott Fuqua $23.95

When young Sam Webber’s father disappears without a trace, he begins to learn about friendships and family in this heartwarming novel about growing up in the city. This coming-of-age story has won virtually every award in its class, including the ALEX Award for best adult books for teens.

The Reappearance of Sam Webber is an uplifting teen and family drama about a young Baltimore boy who, following his father’s disappearance, overcomes depression—both his and his mother’s—and with the help of the residents of his middle-lower class community, especially an older black janitor at his middle school, gets on with his life. Addressing issues of abandonment, fatherless families, friendship, rebirth, bullying, and racism, it is, in movie terms, an urban Bridge to Terabithia, and is quickly becoming required reading in English classrooms throughout the United States and abroad, in great Britain, New Zealand, and Australia.
