A deep meditation on gender and society, but built in the framework of a rich fantasy universe (I really can't wait to read more now). Its at times somber feel meshed well with my current sense of existential melancholy. But really, there's so much in such a small book. Including some necromancy!

SO CUTE. Lots of ghoulies, skeletons, love, and adorable illustrations. Also there's a brief glimpse of a pumpkin headed bookseller who stole my heart.

Author Strong doesn't shy away from racial violence in this MG story, and she slams it out of the park. It's a chilling ghost story wrapped in an endearing tale of family and friendship. For kids who may not like reading non-fiction, this could be a good bridge towards discussions of White violence against Black bodies. Also all of the characters are just so adorable!

A fun jaunt about a young witch who is continuously underestimated and saves the day (quite literally). Great for a smile and giving your mind a rest for a bit from…everything. Contains combustible, cat-like monsters who live under beds.
