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

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

Trying to get groovy points can be hard when you rather play D&D then get Gloria Vanderbilt jeans. As Sunny tries to learn the rules to survive middle school, we see one spunky gal who knows who she is: a human fighter who always remembers to look up for the giant spiders! It just takes a couple rolls of the die to get her there. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

With her family and new friends behind her, Snap learns that who you are, is already there, you just need to find the outlet.
