King and the Dragonflies

King and the Dragonflies

by Kacen Callender

12-year-old King is certain his brother who unexpectedly passed away has become a dragonfly and visits King in his dreams. Life in his small Louisiana town would be easier if King could still talk with his best friend Sandy, but just days before he died, King's brother told him to end the friendship after overhearing a secret that Sandy might be gay. When Sandy goes missing, King must confront questions about himself and learn there is no right way to be yourself. An emotionally intense but hopeful story recommended for ages 8-12.
