Dealing with powerful subjects, this age 14 and up novel deals with the ups and downs of life, love, family and art. Realistically depicting depression and the effect it has on the person suffering as well as those around them, this is not your mom’s typical young adult book. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Monsters! Stomping out of the sea, attacking the city! It's super cool! At least until it actually starts happening in real life, not just in Zoe's favorite movies.
A fun story of how tough it can be to find your true friends, especially if one of them lives under the ocean and is a monster.
I loved Zoe and her passion for robot-building, and the shenanigans of her triplet siblings really made me laugh! A great new graphic novel adventure. ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore

Fantastic historical fiction, focusing on an internment camp near Houston, TX, where American men of German and Japanese descent were held on flimsy charges - and most astonishing, their wives and children could apply to join them... Haruko and Margot, daughters of accused men, are here for that reason, though both are American citizens. Behind barbed wire, they attend the small school, live in Victory Huts, shop in the commissary, swim in the pool... it's a serial, distopian version of 1940s teenage life, that was all too real for many.
My heart was breaking and my mind was in shock at this shameful act by the Dept of Justice. Whole families were held in camps, some waiting to be shipped "back" to a "homeland" that they may never have even seen.
Shocking, and made so human in this well-told story! ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore
