About the Author:

Pat Raccio Hughes is an author of children’s and young adult books. Her mom claims Pat taught herself to read at age 4 by perusing the obituaries in the local newspaper. Soon after that, she started writing stories and poems. Her most recent work is "Five 4ths of July" (Viking) a historical novel about a Connecticut boy’s tumultuous life during the American Revolution. ALA/YALSA named it as one of 2014’s Popular Paperbacks for teens. It was also in Booklist’s Top Ten Historical Novels for Youth in 2012. Other books include "The Breaker Boys" (Backshore), set in 1897 Pennsylvania coal country; "Guerrilla Season" (Farrar, Straus & Giroux), a novel of guerrilla warfare in Civil War Missouri; "Seeing the Elephant" (FSG), a picture book set during the Civil War; and "Open Ice" (Random House), a contemporary novel about a high school hockey star forced to quit playing after his third concussion. "Open Ice" was an ALA/YALSA Popular Paperback in 2008. "The Breaker Boys" and "Seeing the Elephant" were National Council on Social Studies/Children’s Book Council Notable Books. "Guerrilla Season" and "Seeing the Elephant" were Bank Street Best Books. "Guerrilla Season" was also a Junior Library Guild Selection. Pat was born and raised in Hamden, Connecticut, and now lives just outside Philadelphia. She is married with two sons.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-9–In 1897, Nate Tanner is kicked out of boarding school and sent home to Hazelton, PA. His mother has died, and his father has married the family's youthful governess. The 12-year-old is lonely and experiences unexplained rage that manifests itself in fights. His father decrees that Nate will work with a tutor in preparation for the next year at another boarding school, and the boy sees a long summer ahead. While on a bicycle ride, he meets up with a bunch of "breaker boys," immigrants his own age who work at sorting coal in the mines owned by Nate's family. Soon, he is playing baseball with them, and he grows particularly close to Johnny. When Nate is invited to a birthday dinner, he begins to wonder about his family's role in the miners' dire living conditions. When the breaker boys participate in a labor strike, Nate witnesses the brutality of management yet must reconcile it with loyalty to his family. Hughes has created a complex protagonist who's likable even when acting "ugly." The author doesn't provide pat answers, but offers the hope that the questions Nate faces will be resolved. Readers–especially boys–will relate to him, and they will learn about coal production and the everyday life of both workers and owners. An author's note discusses the historical events on which this novel is based.–Elizabeth M. Reardon, McCallie School, Chattanooga, TN
