I've joined Diverse Book Tours, so from time to time you'll see a promotion for a book featuring diverse characters. I haven't read this week's promotion, but 'Pig Park' looks like an interesting story. Check out the summary to see if it looks like your kind of book.
Publisher: Cinco Punto Press
Genre: YA Contemporary
Plot Summary: It's crazy! Fifteen-year-old Masi Burciaga hauls bricks to help build a giant pyramid in her neighborhood park. Her neighborhood is becoming more of a ghost town each day since the lard company moved away. Even her school closed down. Her family's bakery and the other surviving businesses may soon follow. As a last resort, the neighborhood grown-ups enlist all the remaining able-bodied boys and girls into this scheme in hopes of luring visitors. Maybe their neighbors will come back too. But something's not right about the entrepreneur behind it all. And then there's the new boy who came to help. The one with the softest of lips. Pig Park is a contemporary Faustian tale that forces us to look at the desperate lengths people will go to in the name of community--and maybe love.
