Lunella wants to find a cure for the In human genes lurking inside her, the ones that could change her into something else at any moment. Her parents just want her to be a normal girl. Meeting a time-displaced dinosaur and using her inventions to fight crime wasn't really something anyone wanted, but it turns out Devil Dinosaur, in his own way, understands her better than anyone else. A great story that about friendship and figuring out who you really are.

Every Heart a Doorway

We've all read the fairy tales... a young child goes through a wardrobe or falls down a rabbit hole and shows up somewhere else. Seanan McGuire asks the question: what comes next? How does this incredibly diverse group used to living in magical worlds cope with being forced back into the mundane one? And then, of course, people start dying. With McGuire's signature brilliant worldbuilding and beautiful writing, this might be my new favorite book.
