Bold, quick read, great for fans of The Hate U Give.
Through diary entries addressed to Dr Martin Luther King, Justyce tells us his story, opening with his first run-in with police discrimination. Although not physically harmed, the emotionally impact hits Justyce hard, and further encounters with racist "friends" and questionable allies make him take a whole new look at life in 21st century USA.
Strong storytelling and powerful ideas make this debut novel and must-read! ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore

Welcome, once again, to Pullman's extraordinary imagination. The master storyteller has brought us back to the world of His Dark Materials, but earlier on, with some familiar characters and most notably, a new hero in a sturdy canoe: Malcolm Polstead. Part Arthurian quest, part Noah's flood, part Odyssey, part flight into Egypt, La Belle Sauvage will take you for a wild ride that will leave you breathless and yearning for more. ages 10+ ~ Reviewed by Jennifer Armstrong

It's difficult to put this book down once you get sucked into the world of Aza, a teenage girl learning how to cope with loss in multiple forms. Green's novel is an excellent exploration of a teenager's internal struggles with her own mental health. A very quirky, but down to earth book about overcoming obstacles and learning new things about yourself and the people you choose to surround yourself with each day. ~ Reviewed by Laura Knapp
