Adam saw something standing in the road which ultimately caused the accident that led to his parents' disappearance. Unable to come to terms with what he saw, he ventures into an uninhabitable wilderness in search of answers, no matter how dangerous his journey may become.
Living in the north country, we're familiar with Bigfoot - or Sasquatch - and all of us know a story or two about the myths surrounding the mysterious being. Key's fast paced and wild thrill ride takes us to the very edges of human civilization in pursuit of these elusive legendary creatures, in a hair-raising story of survival and adventure. ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

It’s Josiah and Deja’s last night working at the pumpkin patch... and there’s trouble to be had, missions to complete, and delicious fall snacks to scarf down. What will the night bring? How will it end?
I laughed, I smiled, and I read this entire graphic novel in one sitting. It’s charming, it’s sweet, and as I’m sitting here dreaming of trying a pumpkin bomb, I look forward to reading more of Rainbow Rowell’s works. ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

We have a hero mouse, with a familiar past, showing what the little guy can do. The story of Bernard (aka The Dormouse of one famous tea party), is one of courage, community, friendship and even, mistakes. This basically sequel to Alice in Wonderland brings to light why there was an eternal tea party; shows magic is real; it’s hard work to do the right thing and sometimes it only takes one mouse to stand up, for others to follow. ~ Reviewed by Jeanettte

Published: Balzer + Bray - January 28th, 2020

This lovely memoir of becoming not just Korean or not just becoming American but becoming both at the same time and through that, finding yourself. This graphic novel reads as a fiction story, though based on Ha’s life. The details of the story itself help give it a freshness to it and the graphic novel aspect helps bring the characters to life. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Published: HarperAlley - January 21st, 2020

A Holocaust story with a twist. A young, French-Jewish girl, Rachel, goes into hiding but does it in the open. She (and other children) do not stay in any one place too long (usually not by choice). They sometimes are only one step ahead of the Nazis at any point. Things move quickly, text wise, but the illustrations help show the changing time. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Published: G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers - September 10th, 2019

It has been quite some time since a Young Adult novel has impacted me the way that Frankly In Love by David Yoon has. A coming of age story that addresses hard-hitting topics such as race, sexuality, and family dynamics; with excellent prose, a lovable narrator, and characters that will make you laugh, and cry. There truly is something for everyone in this novel. ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn
