Lincoln in the Bardo | George Saunders
Panpan

I finally finished this book. I was so excited to read it, but within the first 40-50 pages I knew it wasn‘t for me. I could not get invested in any of the characters honestly. Other than a few good lines, I did not retain any of the plot of significance that Saunders attempted to convey. I did finish, but it felt more like a chore.

The Hate U Give | Angie Thomas
Pickpick

Wow! This was one of those books that made me cry, and I don‘t cry easily when I read. Thomas gives so much perspective about race relations in the U.S. through the lens of a teenage girl. Raw and unfiltered, it is one of the most important books of modern literature. I hope Thomas continues to write because she really is a talented writer.

Stray City: A Novel | Chelsey Johnson
Pickpick

This was a great debut! Thanks to the @bookriot All the Books podcast for the recommendation. I really liked the character development of Andrea as well as the shifting perspectives. It‘s complex with beautiful description and prose. Yet, it‘s still accessible and not overly flowery. Overall, it‘s fast-moving but does not compromise character development.

Overall, I enjoyed the book. I thought the approach of telling it through the child‘s perspective was pretty creative. I could imagine Jack as one of my students with the broken syntax and child-like description of things. The most interesting part of Jack‘s character was how he reacted to sensory input in the second half of the story (don‘t want to give too much away). Ma seemed fairly relatable to me as a hero to a flawed character as well.

Eh I didn‘t hate it, but I didn‘t love it either. The characters weren‘t all that interesting. The main character seemed like she was the queen of oblivious humble-bragging. Overall, a light read but there are better light reads out there.

I loved this excerpt from Wonder. This year, I'm doing a kindness and acceptance theme in my therapy room. Even though my students are young, the world can be cruel. So, I give them a reminder to be kind to others, even if they don't deserve it. In these times, we all need that. #wordsofwisdom

Born a Crime | Trevor Noah
Pickpick

One of the best releases of this year in my opinion. It offers much more substance than the typical celebrity memoir in that Noah provides an insider perspective on growing up biracial in apartheid/post-apartheid South Africa and how it compares to our country. He discusses tribal dynamics, interracial relationships, as well as the impact of systemic racism after Apartheid.

If there was ever a time where this book is culturally relevant, this is it. Whether you are liberal or conservative, you should read this book in order to understand an oft misunderstood portion of the population.

I think about this as I work with minority kids in lower socio-economic neighborhoods. How will their experience differ from mine? I often have to think about my own privilege as a white woman while working with my students. This gives me a lot of perspective to help me have some inkling of understanding of what they face as they get older.

It took me a while to finish this (~2 months). I loved the first few chapters, but it rapidly became too disjointed. The book seems to explore too many plot points that I didn't know what was relevant. I've heard that his other works are better, and I may attempt them down the line. I'm in the minority in saying that this did not work for me.
