A poignant story about kindness told from the point of view of a girl named Chloe. Chloe and her friends shun Maya, the new girl
in school. Despite Maya's efforts to make friends, Chloe and the others exclude her. Then one day, Maya is gone. When the teacher
presents a lesson on kindness and how even the smallest gesture makes the whole world a little better, Chloe feels remorseful about
the lost opportunity. "Each Kindness" is a recipient of the Coretta Scott King Award and the LA Times Book Prize.
