The author, Paul Ferrante, received his undergraduate and Master's degrees in English from Iona College in New Rochelle, NY. After over 40 years, Paul retired as an award-winning secondary school English teacher and athletics coach, having spent a large portion of his career teaching in an urban district that was predominantly African-American. There he forged close relationships with his students and players, and would go on to be recognized for promoting cultural diversity in the classroom.
The Girl Who Stole J.E.B. Stuart is the story of Didi Diyoka, whose family moves from the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the United States for her father's job. Thrilled with the opportunity to spend her senior year of high school in America, Didi is excited to be learning local history...until she discovers that a lot of the members of her small, Southern community and high school still live in the past. Can Didi help to right these wrongs, or will she be forced to live among the ghosts of the past?
