BLACK DOVE WHITE RAVEN By Elizabeth Wein

2015. 368pp. ISBN: 9781423183105. Disney-Hyperion 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 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. Black
Dove White Raven explores the difficulties this family faced.
