One Book, One Phoenix: The Deep Blue Between

One Book, One Phoenix: The Deep Blue Between Online

What if everyone read the same book this summer? Join us for One Book, One Community, Phoenix Public Library's annual community wide read. June through August, these titles will be instantly available as eBooks in the Greater Phoenix Digital Library/Libby app.

Join this teen-led virtual discussion of The Deep Blue Between by Ayesha Harruna Attah.

About the Book:

Twin sisters Hassana and Husseina have always shared their lives.

But after a raid on their village in 1892, the twins are torn apart. Taken in different directions, far from their home in rural West Africa, each sister finds freedom and a new start. Hassana settles in in the city of Accra, where she throws herself into working for political and social change. Husseina travels to Salvador, Brazil, where she becomes immersed in faith, worshipping spirits that bridge the motherland and the new world. Separated by an ocean, they forge new families, ward off dangers, and begin to truly know themselves.

As the twins pursue their separate paths, they remain connected through their shared dreams. But will they ever manage to find each other again?
