Meet Kaye, one of our new booksellers.
This book is a wild ride, beginning to end! Witchcraft, communing with ancestors, and huge technological advancements is only part of what makes this awesome book a must buy. Through engaging storytelling, humor, and heart, Sambury walks the main character, a 16-year old black girl in Toronto, and the reader, through big topics of integenerational trauma, how far one person will go to protect their family, and what family even means.
Clear your schedule, because once I opened this book I didn't put it down until I was finished. This book is the perfect combination of heartwarming and funny, and I closed the book with my cheeks hurting from smiling.
This book reads as both a love story to New York City and the people who live there, and an action-packed scifi novel. New York City has six representatives who harness the power the city, and throughout the book they have to find each other, and defeat whoever/whatever wants to destroy the city. I love Jemisin's writing, and this book has me impatient for the rest!
This book is mesmerizing. Alan Lightman writes out the many theories of time that Einstein thought of before arriving at his theory of relativity, and turns them into short stories. As you dive into each world, you explore and are able to contemplate alternate relationships to time through beautiful, poetic writing.
This book is a haunting, poetic, magical realism take on a young girl's coming of age story set in a small coastal town. The real highlight of the book is Hunt's masterful use of language and words to pull you into the main character's head. As the main character gets lost in a tangle of her own thoughts and beliefs, so does the reader, until even we don't know what's up or down.
This book is a beautiful scifi novel that is set in our current place and time, which is difficult to do. The main character, a serious, asexual, Native American girl, is out to solve the murder of a family member. She has some help though; a good friend, her ghost dog, and the stories and legacy of her ancestor who she was named after. A thrilling read!
Endlessly heartwarming! This book is a *rollercoaster* of emotions, and is a great read for every middle schooler. Any age really
