Nonfiction isn‘t typically my thing, but I enjoyed this. It was recommended to me by my colleagues who recently added it to their World Literature course. I can definitely understand why they chose it and why it has been resonating with students. Noah‘s voice is sincere and engaging. #nonfiction #teachersoflitsy #representationmatters #weneeddiversebooks

I‘m SO EXCITED to use an excerpt from this book with my #AmericanLit classes this week. Anna‘s chapter “Off the Deep End” fits perfectly with our discussion about what it means to be American, and the timing with the anniversary of 9/11 couldn‘t be better. I just wish my colleagues would venture into this century & join me in diversifying our curriculum 🙄 #weneeddiversebooks #ya #teachersoflitsy #representationmatters

This GORGEOUS cover caught my eye online months ago. Bought it Saturday, started it Sunday, finished it Monday. Once I reached the halfway point, I couldn‘t stop! I generally enjoy historical fiction, and this offered a perspective that I hadn‘t read before. Good twists, semi-predictable but absolutely engaging

“The lengths the haves will go to in order to deprive the have-nots boggles the mind.”

Never thought I‘d be able to say this, but I‘m re-reading The Hate U Give FOR WORK 🙌 This year it‘s a faculty #summerreading option (thanks to me suggesting it) — hopefully it‘ll be for students someday 🤞🙏

I learned so much in this book. The book is set in the Phillipines and the author doesn't shy away from handling some big topics including social inequality, privilege, and substance abuse. I love Sab's voice, inquisitiveness, and determination. At times this book had me near tears and at other points I was filled with hope. It's a wonderful read. #weneeddiversebooks

Had an unexpected day off at my library today (a planned power outage to replace a utility pole) so I popped over to another county library location for some early chapter book inspiration. I‘m planning the reading lists for my #homeschoolbookclub groups this school year. Suggestions welcome, particularly ones with racially & ethnically diverse voices! #kidlit #weneeddiversebooks #chapterbooks

GirlNamedJesse I‘ve read several of these, but we looooove the King & Kayla books! Your reading list sounds awesome! 😊 3mo
Tamra The Zoey & Sassafras‘s series is great! 3mo

It's fitting that I finished this book sitting next to an #LGBT community center. LOVE the premise. The political aspect was surprisingly moving; the last chapter made me teary. However, the voices could've been stronger; most of the characters sounded the same (Brits, Americans, POTUS, twenty-somethings, etc) & multiple "he"s were sometimes confusing. Great read for #PrideMonth ?️‍? #ya #weneeddiversebooks #teachersoflitsy #summerreading
