One of the most original books I’ve read this year, The Ten Thousand Doors of January is a magical adventure that will keep you captivated from the very first page. Or, if you’re like me, the absolutely gorgeous cover.Read More
It was just the most beautiful reading experience to watch these two characters find each other and fall in love.Read More
I loved it. It has all the best elements of a space adventure you can ask for: a diverse crew, psychic cats, secrets kept to protect everyone, and lots of stuff blowing up.
There are a ton of twists and turns within the book and I don’t want to give any of it away, but please know that this book is dark. It’s incredibly written and I loved it, but there were many times I had to put it down, walk away for a while, and come back to it. But it’s definitely worth reading. It’s really good-just really dark.
If you love dystopian female empowerment stories, this is perfect for you.

I can’t imagine the bravery it took to write such a personal story. The book is written from sixth grade Rex’s point of view and provides a unique and unflinching look at how children are affected by poverty. The amount of work it takes to be poor is often overlooked or even worse, dismissed.Read More
I absolutely adore this story and I can’t wait to add it the Library’s collection. It has all the elements of a great middle grade read-friendships, bullies, finding yourself, family secrets-it’s all here.Read More
The Downstairs Girl is a fast paced, well written story that tackles racism and sexism while providing an important insight into our nation’s history. Jo is smart and ambitious and doesn’t let anything stop her from reaching her goal. I loved how she never backed down and always did what she felt was right. Jo’s strength and determination was a great contrast to the sullen and snobbish Caroline.Read More
