Year We Fell from Space | Amy Sarig King

Amy King‘s YA books are some of my favorites (Vera Dietz being my favorite, natch). I missed her first foray into #kidslit, so when I was sent this ARC, I snapped it up. The story is as intense as you‘d expect. Liberty is dealing with both her parents‘ breakup and her fear that she might have depression. A “mirror” story for me, I related to so much of Liberty‘s experience. All this and talking inanimate objects? Sold! #childrensbooks #middlegrade

Not what I expected from a middle grades hit at all! This is definitely the most literary novel I‘ve ever read for that age range. Slow, quiet, and emotionally wrenching, I‘ve continued to think about this for days after finishing. Michael Curran-Dorsano is an excellent narrator as well if you‘re considering the audiobook!

If L. Frank Baum‘s OZ and Erik Shannower‘s OZ had a baby that didn‘t want to live in OZ, this is the book you‘d get. Sweet story that‘s not over told and absolutely gorgeous art. Great for kids and OZ fans of all ages. #kidslit #childrensbooks #graphicnovels #middlegrade

I chose this book based on the title alone, and I am so glad I did! This was such a wonderful book. Set in late 1970s California, it tells the story of “Cindy” and her family, who are originally from Iran. Cindy is struggling to find her place at a new school, while her family also has to deal with the impact of the revolution in Iran and how it will impact them in the US. i learned so much about what took place in Iran through this book. 👇👇

AmberWB But this book was also fantastic in that Cindy‘s group of friends were smart, fun NORMAL tween girls. And there were so many acts of kindness that were weaved throughout the story. Highly recommend this one! 4h

The last installment of #24HourReadingRoom #24HRR this has been interesting and a great way to see what books are in the wild that I haven‘t stumbled on. I‘m late getting this to it‘s owner but I think I need to read this, it‘s the first of a SERIES! And look at this curious cover... 🌳 🚲
