There are a lot of stories about cis children dealing with getting a younger sibling. Aidan's feelings are extra complicated because people keep asking his parents what gender the baby will be, and they didn't know his real gender until he was old enough to tell them. He wants everything to be perfect from the start for this baby! A beautifully written and illustrated book great for children of any gender.

When I was little, I read my copy of Daulaire's Book of Greek Myths so many times the spine broke and we had to keep it together with tape. This book brings back that feeling, except it's a beautiful hardcover, so it'll probably hold together longer.

This has all the space pirates and all-powerful tyrannical empires you could want, with added nuance and social commentary. This book shifts from corporate thriller to space opera with exceptional grace, and gives us the brilliant, analytical, difficult to impress Vivian Liao as our guide. Plus, it's just a ton of fun.

It’s tough to be a woman, especially in a superhero world. They tend to be casualties to the storylines of men, and it’s so common there’s a name for it: women in refrigerators. Valente gives these women a voice and the chance to take their stories back and claim their own narrative. It’s brutal, brilliant, and beautiful and even knowing the stories can’t end well, you find yourself hoping maybe this one will be different.
