Breadline Blue (Educators Guide available www.lornamacdonaldczarnota.com)

Author Lorna Czarnota has created a masterful rite-of-passage narrative about Breadline Blue (William Saxton), a boy of sixteen who leaves home to help his family, devastated by illness and the Great Depression. Wide-eyed ‘Blue’ journeys from boyhood to his emerging maturity, challenged at every turn while riding the rails toward Washington, DC and Eleanor Roosevelt. Along the way he greets the full gamut of humankind as they toss down gauntlets or grace. He meets it all with the solid foundation of the values of the Saxton family, his mother’s voice echoing in his heart, offering readers a protagonist of substance and leaving them wanting more.

                                                                                                                                    -- Susan Klein, Author and Storyteller 

"Lovely characters and beautifully written!  Breadline Blue is a delicious coming of age tale that would be an asset for any classroom! A must-read for students!  Lorna Czarnota delivers a splendid story that is filled with real-life ups and downs. Couldn't put the book down! Veni vidi vici!!"
