Check out this author-illustrator interview video with Daniel W. Vandever on Fall In Line, Holden! by Tyler Mitchell from Salina Bookshelf. From the promotional copy:
Fall in Line, Holden! follows Holden, a young Navajo boy, through his day at boarding school.
Although Holden is required to conform to a rigid schedule and strict standards of behavior, his internal life is led with imagination and wonder.
Whether he is in art class, the computer lab, or walking the hall to lunch, Holden’s vivid imagination transforms his commonplace surroundings into a world of discovery and delight.
Explore the world through Holden’s eyes. Join him for the day, and celebrate the strong spirit of a boy who rises above the rules surrounding him.
