Jazzy’s Quest: Camp to Belong
Carrie and her co-author, Juliet Bond, LCSW, are excited to announce that the third book in their adoption chapter book series – Jazzy’s Quest: Camp To Belong – is now available!
Jazzy is a ten-year-old transracial adoptee in an open adoption who navigates the complexities of being adopted by a white family, along with all the typical challenges of being a tween. The first book in the series was a chapter book designed to introduce Jazzy, her family, and her friends to our readers. The second book was twice the length of the first and explored Jazzy’s social relationships at school and the struggle to fit in with peers. This new third book is a full middle-grade book and it delves into the complex relationship among separated siblings in reunion.
In JAZZY’S QUEST: CAMP TO BELONG, Jazzy and her birth brother Carlos attend a special weeklong camp specifically created for birth siblings separated by foster care and adoption. Based on a real camp called Camp To Belong, Jazzy, Carlos and their fellow campers find that spending a week with your siblings can be unexpectedly challenging. Jazzy learns new restorative ways to manage peer social conflict and deepens her bond with Carlos.
It’s fun to get lost in a book, especially the latest in the Jazzy’s Quest series!
