Twisted | Laurie Halse Anderson
post image
Pickpick

I just love Laurie Halse Anderson. I began listening on @scribd to her novel Twisted, and I was immediately swept away. The protagonist, Tyler, embodies so much of what is great about teenagers: self-discovery, wavering self-confidence, and an earnest attempt to do what is right. While some of the twists and turns seemed to be a little overdramatized, I left convinced (once again!) of Anderson's ability to dig into the minds of teenagers.⠀

Normal People | Sally Rooney

APRIL WRAP-UP! I really enjoyed many of the books I read this month. My favorites were The Stars Beneath Our Feet, Daisy Jones and the Six, Internment, The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls, Normal People, and Anger Is a Gift (though I thoroughly enjoyed many others).⠀

Wenjack | Joseph Boyden
post image
Pickpick

Joseph Boyden's Wenjack is a masterpiece, a concise, spare, and poetic story of Chanie, a nine-year-old Ojibwe boy who was taken from his home and placed in an Indian school designed to assimilate him into the Canadian culture. His escape with two other boys moves through his perspective and the views of the animals who accompany him on his journey in a beautiful, heartbreaking account.⠀

Five Feet Apart | Rachael Lippincott
post image

I have a LOT of feelings about both this book AND the movie adaptation (although maybe I should say this screenplay, book adaptation, and subsequent movie adaptation? There are many layers here). Check out our varying opinions about Five Feet Apart in our most recent podcast episode to see what each of us thinks. Then share your opinion—we‘d love to know what you think!!

Our newest episode of Unabridged features our reflection on the sessions we attended at the Virginia Festival of the Book. This was our first Unabridged Field Trip, and we had SO. MUCH. FUN. (as you probably guessed if you follow us on social media). Tune in to find out just how much we can go on about meeting some of our literary heroes.

This week's episode of Unabridged was a funny one for me. "We should record an episode about cookbooks," they said. "It will be fine that you don't cook," they said.

Well, I think I made it work, but see what YOU think, and let us know! ?

Sunny | Jason Reynolds
post image
Pickpick

Jason Reynolds's Track series concludes with Sunny and Lu. In these final two books, he continues doing what he did so well with Ghost and Patina: developing unique characters who have faced tragedy and have struggled. For each of the four, the Defenders track team offers friends, family, an amazing mentor in Coach, and something to strive for beyond themselves. What a fabulous middle-grade series . . . though I loved it just as much!!!
