Overview

2016 SYDNEY TAYLOR NOTABLE BOOK
ASSOCIATION OF JEWISH LIBRARIES

A realistic, tender coming-of-age novel set in the segregated Baltimore suburbs during the 1960s. As Katherine Weinstein searches for acceptance and courage, she imagines greatness and romance in her life. But her imagination doesn't prepare her for the arrival of Charlotte, the first black student in her school, or the dramatic changes that follow.


"IMAGINING KATHERINE, a lyrical and provocative YA novel of the sixties, offers much to remind older readers of just how enduring is the battle against racism and stereotyping, a cause the book so nobly embraces."
--FAYE MOSKOWITZ, author of HER FACE IN THE MIRROR: JEWISH WOMEN ON MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS

"Katherine Weinstein is richly drawn, and her adolescent angst is rendered with insight and compassion. Like all good YA books, this is a good read for adults as well."
--MICHELLE BRAFMAN, author of WASHING THE DEAD
