The Latte Rebellion by Sarah Jamila Stevenson
Published: January 2011 by Flux
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Audience: Young Adult
When high school senior Asha Jamison gets called a "towel head" at a pool party, the racist insult gives Asha and her best friend Carey a great money-making idea for a post-graduation trip. They'll sell T-shirts promoting the Latte Rebellion, a club that raises awareness of mixed-race students.
Seemingly overnight, their "cause" goes viral and the T-shirts become a nationwide fad. As new chapters spring up from coast to coast, Asha realizes that her simple marketing plan has taken on a life of its own-and it's starting to ruin hers. Asha's once-stellar grades begin to slip, threatening her Ivy League dreams, and her friendship with Carey is hanging by a thread. And when the peaceful underground movement turns militant, Asha's school launches a disciplinary hearing.Facing expulsion, Asha must decide how much she's willing to risk for something she truly believes in.

Leave a comment with your favorite coffee/latte drink (don't forget to leave me your email so I can contact you if you win!)
My favorite latte is Starbucks green tea latte. I used to make fun of people who went to Starbucks all the time, but then I became a teacher and students would give me Starbucks gift cards for Christmas. After I gave a few of them away to friends and family because I can't drink coffee anyway (it burns my stomach something fierce), I decided to try one of their non-coffee drinks. It was a chai latte and I think Starbucks must put crack in their drinks because that first sip got me addicted right off the bat. Chai was my gateway drug. Now I mostly order green tea lattes in the cold months and vanilla frappucchinos during the warm months. Bottom line? My name is Beth and I'm a Starbucks addict. (and I don't even drink coffee!)
