I finished this on audio yesterday while getting things ready for our first day with students. It was a really fun adventure story, and is getting added to the list of books I want to read with my 6th grade book club! #schoollibraries #teachersoflitsy #librariansoflitsy

This is a super fun middle grade adventure about Maya, a young girl growing up on the South Side of Chicago, who discovers that the Dark is rising & that her family plays a key role in defending against it. When a mysterious stranger starts haunting her dreams & then her father goes missing, Maya & her friends must step up to save him & protect their neighborhood. Wonderful addition to school & home libraries. Recommended. (Out this month.)

LibrarianRyan Lucky duck. My galley got lost in the mail. Can't wait to buy it. 2y

Okay Ladies, Here is my possibility list:

Maya is my number one choice. It's not out until September but I won a copy in a Twitter give away. I don't have it yet but should soon. It's about a girl from the south side of Chicago who goes on a magical quest to save her father.

Race the Sun is from RR presents and is based on Navajo mythology.

Dragon Pearl is also from RR Presents and is a Koren Mythology space adventure.

LibrarianRyan The First Rule of punk I have just wanted to read for a while

The Witch Boy is supposed to be an allegory for the trans community. But it is a GN so I don't know how interested you all would be.

The Pants project is about a girl on the outside becoming the boy they always were.

So what sounds best for you all?

TheBookHippie @LibrarianRyan books from Chicago have a lag right now not sure where your book is coming from. 3y
LibrarianRyan @TheBookHippie Im not sure. It's coming from the publisher. and I know all of them are running slow. that is why I can not guarantee that book but I really want to. 3y
Chrissyreadit I love Maya! What is GN? 3y

Chrissyreadit 🤪😂🥰 I‘m so behind in stuff. 3y
SaturnDoo I don't read a lot of magical/fantasy stuff so Maya might be the ticket to get me interested 😊 ❤ I am in for that. 3y
