When I was small, putting into words the big feelings I was experiencing seemed impossible. Struggling with depression at any age is a feat, but when you are young and emotions are already so new, it can feel as though you are drowning. This debut picture book is such a gift for those who are tumbling in the waves, reminding them that there is always hope on shore. It also provides great resources for families to help continue the conversation once the book has finished.

If you have ever nurtured dreams of sprouting wings and going to live in the garden you should buy this book and enjoy it in the shade of your favorite tree or nestled near a garden you love. As kids my sister and I used to flip through our books of flower fairies and pick out what flower petals we would like to wear most. Sure to be a treasured heirloom.

It's nigh impossible to get more classic YA fantasy than Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea Cycle. Over fifty years old, A Wizard of Earthsea was written at a time when fantasy for young adults barely existed; its groundbreaking status is demonstrated by a balance between a rich, high fantasy setting and fascinating character arcs. If you want a fantasy protagonist who really struggles to come into their own, this is a must read!

I absolutely loved the experience of reading this book. Wellington is promising as a writer and I'm looking forward to her future works. This novel is funny, enlightening, and will be relatable (apart from the idea of participating in a deadly game, although I won't presume...) to many.
