An adorable book about siblings and finding who you are not only to yourself but to others. It is a cozy (short) story about Jacob and the Trips (his triplet sisters). Even though Jacob wanted a litter of puppies, not siblings, he soon learns through his school project they are not "dolls" or "the girls" or even "the Trips" they are three unique people and even though he’s “the big brother” he might just be one of them, too. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

This is the origin story of how the School for Good and Evil came to be. It is also the story of two brothers sworn to love each other forever and never betray the other under penalty of losing the immortality the Storian gave them in exchange for becoming Good Schoolmaster and Evil Schoolmaster. Sounds simple, except for the whole living-forever thing and growing bored of the only companion they’ve had for the past hundred years. But there are consequences for upsetting the balance between Good and Evil. Prepare for a roller coaster ride of betrayal, treachery, desire, trickery, love, romance, jealousy, and magic. ~ Reviewed by Hannah Odasz

This was such an adorable and heartwarming story! We follow Roz: a robot who finds herself activated by a group of otters after her crate is washed up on an island shore. Unaware of her purpose or how she arrived on the island, Roz is forced to quickly learn and adapt to her surroundings as she explores the wilderness around her and meets other animals on the island, both friends and foes. The Wild Robot is an important story about overcoming adversity and what it means to be human- I’d recommend it to everyone! ~ Reviewed by Madison Gallup
