The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

by Mark Twain

"All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn," Ernest Hemingway wrote, "It's the best book we've had." A complex masterpiece that has spawned volumes of scholarly exegesis and interpretative theories, it is at heart a compelling adventure story. Huck, in flight from his murderous father, and Nigger Jim, in flight from slavery, pilot their raft thrillingly through treacherous waters, surviving a crash with a steamboat, betrayal by rogues, and the final threat from the bourgeoisie. Informing all this is the presence of the River, described in palpable detail by Mark Twain, the former steamboat pilot, who transforms it into a richly metaphoric entity. Twain's other great innovation was the language of the book itself, which is expressive in a completely original way. "The invention of this language, with all its implications, gave a new dimension to our literature," Robert Penn Warren noted. "It is a language capable of poetry."

by Douglas Flamming

The story of the African American experience in the Western US, from colonial times to the present, is chronicled in this accessible reference for students in high school and up.

The chapter on the African American West since 1980 examines topics including the Rodney King beating, gangsta rap, and suburbanization.

Aimee

by Mary Beth Miller

First-novelist Miller creates an intense psychological drama narrated by a troubled teen recently acquitted of murder charges. The question "Did Zoe really help best friend Aimee commit suicide?" hangs precariously between the lines of Zoe's journal, where (according to her psychologist) she is to write about her past, "what you felt, what you thought, what was important to you." Zoe pointedly avoids discussing the fateful night of Aimee's death, but she candidly describes her present emotions. She openly expresses her scorn for therapists, her resentment of her mother, her longing to see old friends (whom she is forbidden to contact) and her avoidance of a girl at her new school (the girl flirts with death the same way Aimee did). Tension mounts as Zoe edges ever closer to the truth about Aimee's death, but details remain below the surface until the cathartic climax, when Zoe finally recaps the horrific chain of events and must determine whether or not the tragedy could have been prevented. While the premise involves extremes of behavior, readers will readily recognize the feelings and conflicts that fuel this engrossing novel. Investigating the tensions between teens and the adults in their lives, the author raises hard-hitting questions that resound all the more powerfully for her refusal to simplify the answers.
