This picture book tells the story of one girl who constantly gets asked a simple question that doesn’t have a simple answer. When she is asked where she’s from—where she’s really from—none of her answers seems to be the right one. Unsure about how to reply, she turns to her loving Abuelo for help. He doesn’t give her the response she expects. She gets an even better one.

Harbor Me

Jacqueline Woodson

It all starts when six young people have to meet for a weekly chat--by themselves, with no adults to listen in. There, in the room they soon dub the ARTT Room (short for "A Room to Talk"), they discover it's safe to talk about what's bothering them.
