Teacher First Look: The Harlem Charade
by Alexie Basil
This week, fifth grade teacher Laura Haney from Columbia, South Carolina, got a sneak peek at Natasha Tarpley’s upcoming novel, The Harlem Charade.
In the story, three unlikely friends embark on a journey to save their neighborhood from being turned into a theme park. With its rich descriptions of the Harlem neighborhood, the diversity of its characters, and depth of its themes, The Harlem Charade is a book Ms. Haney thinks everyone is sure to enjoy!
The Harlem Charade will be available from Scholastic Reading Club in January 2017.
