One of the most unique books I've read this year, Stars Hollow meets Twin Peaks in this magical novel about toxic masculinity, choice and consequence, a town in the shadow of a volatile cliff and the family that protects them by stealing emotions from the townspeople. The voice jumps off the page and the magic is transportive. Read this or we are no longer friends.

But she convinces her cousins to join her in the Everwood, her imaginary world, in the woods behind their house. Fabulous writing drives this darker but happier version of Bridge to Terebithia.

Raymie Nightingale

Wonderful characters, great story, I was completely charmed by this book. It’s the summer of 1975; three girls meet for the first time at baton-twirling lessons given by one time State Champion Ida Nee. All have plans to enter the Little Miss Central Florida Tire competition, all for very different reasons. Is two time Newbery winner Kate DiCamillo on her way to a third? I think so.

Hot Pterodactyl Boyfriend

There's no getting around it - Hot Pterodactyl Boyfriend is a weird book. And before you ask, it's both exactly what it sounds like and nothing like you'd expect. I frequently found myself wondering, "Is this really happening?" while reading, but was won over by the novel's lyrical prose and surprising surrealist style and feminist themes.
