  1. My 11 year old son read the Tristan Strong book and finished it in only 3 days! Now I talk it with my students and their parents. It is such a good book. I can’t wait to try the Arcade book with my son. I love that this book list has strong main characters that appeal to all Black children. Thanks for curating this list. 🙂
