My favorite of the half a dozen or so Cynthia Leitich Smith books I've read so far is this one, the only non-paranormal one I've read. The story centers on a Native girl and her family as they navigate life in a small-minded Kansas community that objects to things like casting a Black girl as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. btw did you know Frank Baum believed in Native genocide???
