The Laura Line

(2013)
A novel by

 
Thirteen-year-old Laura Dyson wants two things in life: to be accepted by her classmates and to be noticed by ultra-cute baseball star Troy Bailey. But everyone at school makes fun of her for being overweight, and Troy won't give her a second glance.
 
But a school assignment changes that. Laura is forced to learn the history of the slave shack on her grandmother's property, and she discovers she comes from a line of strong African-American women. Through understanding her roots, Laura finds the self-esteem she's been missing.
