Weíve had some earthquakes in Oklahoma lately, but nothing like the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti back in 2010. I remember the news coverage and the outpouring of charitable support for Haiti, but after awhile we all moved on. But imagine losing your mother, your home, and your plans for the future, all in an instant. Thatís what happens to cousins Magdalie and Nadine in Hold Tight, Donít Let Go. They have to adapt to life in a makeshift tent in a refugee camp, but at least they have each other. That is, until Nadine is able to move to Miami. Magdalie is torn between trying to reunite with Nadine and building a new future for herself in Haiti. 
(Oklahoma Sequoyah Award, 2017)
