The Latte Rebellion by Sarah Jamila Stevenson

Hoping to raise money for a post-graduation trip to London, Asha Jamison and her best friend Carey decide to sell T-shirts promoting the Latte Rebellion, a club that raises awareness of mixed-race students.

But seemingly overnight, their "cause" goes viral and the T-shirts become a nationwide social movement. As new chapters spring up from coast to coast, Asha realizes that her simple marketing plan has taken on a life of its own-and it's starting to ruin hers. Asha's once-stellar grades begin to slip, threatening her Ivy League dreams, while her friendship with Carey hangs by a thread. And when the peaceful underground movement spins out of control, Asha's school launches a disciplinary hearing. Facing expulsion, Asha must decide how much she's willing to risk for something she truly believes in.

Praise:

"Stevenson's debut novel expertly handles complex issues around race and ethnic identity without seeming pedantic. A welcome addition to a rapidly evolving genre of multiethnic young adult literature."-SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"Asha is engaging and the depiction of her journey-a realistic mess of vague hopes, serendipitous events, serious missteps and gutsy choices-compellingly original."-KIRKUS REVIEWS

"Young readers facing real life racism are sure to be inspired by the story."-FOREWORD MAGAZINE

"This coming-of-age story is craftily written, fast paced and delivers a message of doing the right thing under difficult circumstances. The Latte Rebellion is a wonderful, conceptual story from a new author with strong promise of becoming established in the YA genre."-VOYA

"The portrayal of Asha's initially misguided but relatable social awakening is so honest that readers will find themselves first cringing at her efforts, then cheering her on."-BOOKLIST

"[The Latte Rebellion] is more than the typical high school story. [It] will strike a chord with those students who are trying to find their place in society."-LIBRARY MEDIA CONNECTION

"A thoughtful taste of one girl's attempt at being a world-traveling, latte-drinking, singularly awesome individual in a world determined to herd her into being classified as either coffee or milk."-TANITA S. DAVIS, AUTHOR OF MARE'S WAR, A CORETTA SCOTT KING HONOR BOOK

"Get ready to start your own rebellion after gulping down Sarah Stevenson's deftly written, multi-layered story about growing a voice, growing apart, and most of all, growing up girl."-JUSTINA CHEN, AUTHOR OF NORTH OF BEAUTIFUL
