You would probably enjoy books by Walter Dean Myers if you enjoy Sharon Draper.
Also try A Different Kind of Heat, I think the author is Pagliarulo.
Have you read Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry by Mildred Taylor? It's great, but historical ficiton.
Look up the Corretta Scott King book award and try some of those.

Check out "The Flying Deuce" by Brian Linn Smith. It's gotten good reviews on amazon. Here's the back cover.
Murder in the Mountains
Rob Allen lost his youth and his leg in Iraq. Being the single parent of a four year old girl has given him a reason to recover and paramedic school has given him the means. A disciplinary transfer has displaced him from his native Manhattan into the secluded mountains of northern Pennsylvania. His fears of boredom are quickly replaced by a struggle for survival. When Rob realizes that a traffic accident victim was actually murdered he enlists the help of Deputy Coroner Anna Drake. As the two investigate they discover that the crime of the city has its roots in the beautiful mountains. They become targets and race to stop the killer before more of their informants, or they and their families die.
