Featured Title


Holler of the Fireflies


Grades 4-6


Twelve-year-old Javari Harris leaves his Brooklyn neighborhood for a two-week STEM camp in West Virginia. Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, the town and camp are unlike anything Javari has experienced before. Javari doesn’t make friends with his fellow STEM campers, but does meet a local boy named Cricket who invites him out at night to see the real community and help him uncover the truth behind contaminated water in the area. By the end of his stay, Javari gets an education and an epic experience–though it may not be the one he was expecting.
