The Welcome Home Diner (2017)
Peggy Lampman
"This book is cast with a colorful and diverse group of characters led by two cousins, both strong women, who decide to open a wholesome diner in a neglected part of Detroit. With a rich and descriptive flair, Peggy Lampman gracefully tackles the contentious issues the cousins face including prejudice, the community’s resistance to change, and their own personal clashes."
