Today’s Featured Book of Color is Red Glass by Laura Resau.

Pablo a 6-year-old Mexican boy is facing dehydration in a hospital room after attempting to cross into the Arizona border with his family. The only problem is his family didn’t survive and he’s now an orphan, but there is hope in a business card he is holding.

Sophie’s stepfather is called into the hospital, but he does not recognize the little boy. Pablo comes to live with the family anyway, including Sophie’s Aunt Dika, a refugee from Bosnia.

A year goes by, and the family gets in contact with Pablo’s extended family in Mexico, and now Pablo must make a decision on who he wants to remain with. Sophie loves Pablo and is torn up inside about what will happen; she must learn that life is still beautiful even when tragedies occur.
