“The story you are about to read is a work of fiction. Nothing - and everything - about it is real.” ― Todd Strasser
Mirror Book: A text in which you can see a reflection of your identity and experiences.
“When children cannot find themselves reflected in the books they read, or when the images they see are distorted, negative, or laughable, they learn a powerful lesson about how they are devalued in the society of which they are a part.”
Mirrors, Windows, and Sliding Glass Doors by Rudine Sims Bishop. 2009
Window Book : A text where readers may meet people who are not like themselves, who offer alternative worldviews.
Sliding Glass Door : A text where readers may step through and inhabit a world different from their own.
