Jessica Tran desperately wants a superpower. She‘s the daughter of two superheroes and her sister is one too. So what‘s her ability? She doesn‘t seem to have any! She lands a dream job but soon learns she‘s working for her parents‘ enemies! But they‘re missing and instead a mysterious M is taking over. A fun read. Loved that the main character is a bisexual Vietnamese-Chinese teen & that her friends are a diverse lot.

It‘s really a bit chilly to be sitting outside but the boy‘s tennis class is outdoors today and I‘m waiting for him to finish up in a few minutes. Meanwhile, I want to mention this book and it is such a beauty. It may not look much from this cover but inside is such a stunner full of great writing, something so compelling and dreamy emerging from material that is ugly and painful

This is volume two of this two-part series. I loved how Yaichi continues to grow in this volume. And I shed many a tear as the book drew to an end.

What an absolute pleasure this series was to read.

What made me borrow this book was because it‘s a translated comic, and one from Korea. What I found was a brutal but honest look at the lives of these young girls from low-income families amid the backdrop of abuse. Kids abuse kids, teachers abuse kids, parents and relatives abuse kids. It‘s a harsh and gritty comic in black and white.

Weaponxgirl This sounds amazing! 4d

Second YA book I‘ve read by a Korean-American author that mentions trypophobia! The first was in Maurene Goo‘s The Way You Make Me Feel.
The funny thing is I‘ve always had this thing about seeing little holes. It doesn‘t freak me out but little holes clustered together always gives me goosebumps. And so when I read it for the first time, it was like, oh hey there‘s actually a term for this!

Moray_Reads Trypophobia gets me too. It's not just holes though, for me it's also uneven textures and things like cracked mud 6d
JamieArc Oh wow! When I was younger, I always had these nightmares and they were the worst, but I never knew how to describe them because they were about textures, shapes, and sounds maybe. 6d
Chocomeiske @Moray_Reads I didn't even know there was a name for this. 6d
UwannaPublishme I almost thought that was “typophobia.” I‘m definitely allergic to typos! 🤣 5d
tywritenow Pomegranates. Do they count? My sister is always eating them & I told her they look like the devil‘s fruit. Fine as a flavor but I can‘t stand looking at them. 5d

The author writes beautifully but her main character Shalini was not easy to connect with. She sometimes seems a bit naive for her age and that proves disastrous for the people around her. But I loved reading about Shalini‘s foray into village life in Kashmir, so far and different from bustling Bangalore where she‘s from. And it‘s these little moments that make this book a beautiful and moving one

When I was a teen, YA didn‘t exist. And pretty much all the books I was reading were written and starring white people. I hardly remember reading anything with an Asian protagonist. Or if there were Asian characters, they were stereotypes.
So reading this was with a wistful, oh if only I could‘ve read this when I was younger. But also a, who cares if I‘m reading this too late, I‘m just glad someone is writing this for the young girls of today.

LibrarianJen I felt the same way growing up Hispanic and in the Southwest. Like there was House On Mango Street, but it didn‘t really click and Bless Me Ultima was too above my head as a teenager. 2w

It‘s taking me a while to get into this weird world though. I love all the world building that‘s going on but with new and imagined worlds it takes commitment and the right frame of mind to immerse oneself into unusual places. And sometimes it takes more than one try to get into it. I love Fforde‘s writing and had the privilege to interview him when I was working for a Singapore newspaper and he was super nice!

Half a World Away | Cynthia Kadohata

A lovely middle grade novel about a young boy, a Romanian adoptee, whose family is adopting a baby from Kazakhstan. It was interesting seeing the adoption process from the perspective of a 12yo who was adopted at age 8. Jaden is a difficult kid - he‘s full of anger - but he begins to open up as the book progresses. I love that Kadohata writes books about difficult situations like this.

Comics. Nonfiction. Middle grade fiction. Translated works. Talking cats. Fearless women. Winged beings. A remorseful assassin. Musicians. Los Angeles in the 70s. Drugs and more drugs. Evictions. Racism. Sexism. Determination and optimism.

A great audiobook by a wonderfully diverse group from so many different cultures and backgrounds. These are not just people who write for a living but also politicians, people in sports (Michelle Kwan, Jeremy Lin), people on stage/screen (Padma Lakshmi, Lin Manuel Miranda).
They all have amazing stories to tell about being American -
I loved hearing them read out their stories, and it was nice to put voices to some unfamiliar names.

A fun read. After a strange meteor shower, Quinn is invulnerable. He thinks it‘s a lousy superpower at first. Then he meets Glow, who also has a meteor-given superpower and she urges him to help his community.
I like how relatable he is, and how his parents are a part of the story. The diverse cast of superheroes is great - like Quin, many are trying to figure things out. This optimistic, hopeful comic has a great young superhero for our times.

Definitely feels more like SoCal than NorCal these past few days with all this hot hot heat we‘ve been having. So this book by Eve Babitz, set in SoCal, is quite fitting. To be honest, I hadn‘t heard of Babitz or this book. I just happened to be scanning the shelves and thought it sounded interesting. Turns out that Babitz is having a comeback - her books are being reissued, a TV adaptation is being made, and a biography published in January

We listened to this audiobook and I was surprised by how much my kids enjoyed it. I had to stop the audiobook here and there just to make sure the 5yo (and sometimes the 8yo) understood what was going on. We haven‘t quite read a book like Crenshaw before, one which talked about hunger and poverty and eviction. I think it may have been an eye opener for my boys, to learn of kids going hungry and families living out of cars. 🌟 🌟🌟🌟🌟

rretzler It was such a cute book. Have you read The One and Only Ivan by Applegate? It is a fantastic book. 1mo
