Read full description of the books:
A single pair of shoes connects lives across different times and places in an unforgettable journey—a story of strength, love, bravery, memory, and the serendipity that binds us all together.
Dalya is the daughter of a cobbler in Berlin, and though she is only fifteen, she knows she will follow in her father’s footsteps. Then, one violent November night, she is forced into a concentration camp, and must leave behind everything she knew and loved . . . including the single, gorgeous pair of shoes she was finally allowed to craft for herself.
Meanwhile, Dalya’s beloved shoes take their own journey to America. When they wind up in a secondhand shop, they enter the lives of Ray and Pinny, two modern-day orphans who couldn’t be more different. Ray is jagged around the edges in every possible way, with music her only escape. Pinny believes in the More of life . . . and she doesn’t want the fact that she has Down syndrome to stop her from living her dreams.
One pair of shoes intertwines these lives in ways as moving as they are memorable.
“Addresses racism, morality, discrimination, and self-esteem, all with exceptional tact and sensitivity. This uplifting story depicts the best and worst in humanity and the true strength of the human spirit.” —School Library Journal

Read information about the authorWhen she was in kindergarten, Suzanne Nelson jotted down in a school keepsake album that she wanted to be a “riter.” Though she clearly had issues with spelling, she persisted, composing cryptic poems about rainbows, fairies, mud, and even "Star Wars" in spiral notebooks all through elementary school. When she was seventeen, she filled four journals with her handwritten first novel, titled “The Dream Keeper.” To escape her chores, she often lied to her parents about what time her shift started at the local fast food joint so that she could spend an extra hour writing in the parking lot in her mom’s faded Buick. Her first published novel was The Sound of Munich, followed by Heart and Salsa, The Ghoul Next Door, Cake Pop Crush, and Dead in the Water. She is a shameless fan of “The Sound of Music,” Hershey’s kisses, Charlotte Bronte, and Jane Austen, and can often be caught daydreaming of romping about gothic castles in lovely Victorian gowns. She was born in New Jersey, grew up in Southern California, attended college in Texas, and spent eight years as a children’s book editor in New York City. She now lives in Ridgefield, Connecticut with her family.
