Wow. What a gut-punch of a book. This is exactly the story we need at this moment and I hope you all pre-order, request from the library etc.

I‘ve had this ARC for over a year. I considered donating it a couple times but always thought that no, this one is special. I was right. #NewberyMedal

I did not plan on reading this entire book in one night but I am helpless in the face of such perfectly written banter.

I just read about six YA books in a row so time to switch it up with some middle grade fiction.

This is book is so good I went right past my bus stop reading it.

I feel like compressed timelines are more common in YA than in middle grade but Jennifer Torres uses the device really effectively in this new one, out in June.

Molly's Surprise | Valerie Tripp
post image

One of my personal literary traditions is rereading the American Girl Christmas books on Christmas Eve every year. Tough choice between Addy, Molly and Samantha for which is my favorite.

This book is thought-provoking but also incredibly depressing. Not that I usually expect Anderson‘s work to be cheerful, but still.

A few of my favorite underrated YA titles. Read The Scorpion Rules if you want to be devastated, Pasadena if you love gritty noir-ish mysteries and Noteworthy if you want to laugh and sigh. #riotgrams
