 1.  Operation Marriage

Chin-Lee, Cynthia 1604864222 / 9781604864229 Hardcover

Brand New! 

Eight-year old Alex has a fight with her best friend, Zach, who says he can no longer be her friend. Why? Because her parents aren't married. Set in the San Francisco Bay Area months before the passage of Proposition 8 banning gay marriage in California, this picture book looks at the heartwarming and humorous actions of Alex and her younger brother, Nicky, to convince their parents to get married. Though content with a commitment ceremony years earlier, the childrens' stubbornness prevails and the moms get legally married before Prop. 8 takes effect. Their love as a family is contagious as their neighbors begin to accept them for what they are: a normal, affectionate family. Based on a true story, Cynthia Chin-Lee (author of Amelia to Zora) has written a splendid and touching story about a real family, and the real implications of the struggle for equality, with beautiful and captivating illustrations by Lea Lyon (Say Something). 
Price: 14.95 USD
