              Trash (Audio CD / Audio)

              By Mulligan, Andy; Gonzalez, Michelle; Read by Deocamop, Ramon; Nunez, Chris; Steele, Elissa

              In an unnamed Third World country, in the not-so-distant future, three dumpsite boys make a living picking through the mountains of garbage on the outskirts of a large city. One unlucky-lucky day, Raphael finds something very special and very mysterious. So mysterious that he dec...ides to keep it, even when the city police offer a handsome reward for its return. That decision brings with it terrifying consequences, and soon the dumpsite boys must use all of their cunning and courage to stay ahead of their pursuers. It's up to Raphael, Gardo, and Rat--boys who have no education, no parents, no homes, and no money--to solve the mystery and right a terrible wrong. Andy Mulligan has written a powerful story about unthinkable poverty--and the kind of hope and determination that can transcend it. With twists and turns, unrelenting action, and deep, raw emotion, Trash is a heart-pounding, breath-holding novel.

              The Poet Slave of Cuba: A Biography of Juan Francisco Manzano (Audio CD / Audio)

              By Engle, Margarita; Read by Cabrero, Yesenia; Nunez, Chris; Rodriguez, Ozzie; Santana, Roberto

              Together we belonged along with countless others human beasts of burden to the proud Marquesa . . . Juan Francisco Manzano has never known any other life. Born into the household of a wealthy slaveowner in Cuba in 1797, he spent his early years by the side of a woman who made him... call her Mama, even though he had a mama of his own. Denied an education, young Juan still showed an exceptional talent for poetry. His verses reflect the beauty of his world, but they also expose its hideous cruelty. In powerful, haunting verses of her own, Margarita Engle evokes the voice of the Poet Slave of Cuba.

              The Surrender Tree (Audio CD / Audio)

              By Engle, Margarita; Read by Cabrero, Yesenia; Millon, Vane; Nunez, Chris; Rodriguez, Ozzie

              How can there be a little war? Are some deaths smaller than others, leaving mothers who weep a little less? Cuba has fought three wars for independence, and still she is not free. Her people have been rounded up in reconcentration camps, where there is always too little food and ...too much illness. Rosa knows how to heal sickness with medicines made from wild plants. But with a price on her head for helping the rebels, Rosa dares not go out in the open. Instead, she turns hidden caves into hospitals for those who know how to find her. Black, white, Cuban, Spanish-Rosa does her best for everyone, even Lieutenant Death, who has sworn to kill her. Yet who can heal a country so torn apart by war? In this history in verse, acclaimed poet Margarita Engle has created a lyrical, powerful portrait of Cuba.
