Last Stop On Market Street

book cover of last stop on market street

School Library Journal calls Matt de la Peña's Last Stop on Market Street "an excellent book that highlights less popular topics such as urban life, volunteerism, and thankfulness, with people of color as the main characters. A lovely title." We'll add that it's also creative, charming, and warm. Check out all the honors this best seller has accumulated in past year!
