Diana J. Noble’s historical debut novel for young adults, Evangelina Takes Flight, is a Junior Library Guild Selection, and the recipient of several awards including Best YA Fiction from the National Association for Chicano/a Studies, the  Tejas Foco YA Fiction Award and the June Franklin Naylor Award for the Best Book for Children on Texas History. This moving novel introduces teens to the tumultuous times of the Mexican Revolution and the experiences of immigrants, especially Mexican Americans, as they adjust to a new way of life. "Noble propels the novel with vivid imagery and lovely prose, successfully guiding readers behind an immigrant family’s lens. Loosely based on Noble’s own grandmother’s story”—Kirkus Reviews   “Honest in its exploration of xenophobia, and timely in its empathetic portrayal of a refugee family, Evangelina Takes Flight is a vibrant and appealing historical novel...a gorgeously woven message of hope.”—Foreword Reviews
