The girl who lives in this house is pretty sure it's haunted, but she's looked everywhere and can't find the ghosts! Maybe a reader could help her out? (This is 10/10 the cleverest use of tracing paper I've ever seen, holy crow).
When Ginny starts fixating on the hazards of climate change, her parents send her off to wilderness camp for a month. Ginny thinks someone's made a mistake, especially when it appears every other camper is a boy delinquent, but she finds out she has plenty to learn about the environment and about people.
When I picked this one up, I knew it was gonna be a great read-and it turned out to be even better than that. A light and humorous collection of truly ABSURD ways of doing things like moving (use a rocket!) or building a pool (might be easier on Mars. No, really!). Just as absurd but wholesome as Munroe's initial webcomic, XKCD, and worth every read.
An astrophysicist-folklorist tells the story of our galaxy -- narrated by the Milky Way itself.
Some of us are afraid of the things that go bump in the night. Others of us ARE the things that go bump in the night. Whether you're one or the other or neither, there's much to appreciate about this beautiful book. The illustrations add a magical touch to a story about balance and mutual appreciation.
This is just such a phenomenally well developed and frightening allegory about self and identity. Complex world building details add to a growing atmosphere of internal and external dystopia and dysphoria. The horror and violence end up cresting and create space - amazingly - for some hope. It's horror with a heart, and my heart loves it.
A journey through decades as we follow one Cherokee family and the monsters they meet --or face or befriend or become. Each story feels like the perfect glimpse into a the life of each complex character. In turns haunting, heartfelt, and hopeful, this book is ideal for teen and adult readers alike.
Beautiful little book about fish, fascination, the deep and rotten roots of eugenics in this country, and the way what we know to be true changes. Fish don't exist! One half of Piera's October "Science Sure Does Change!" Special.
I was ten years old when Pluto was officially "demoted" - declared not a planet, but a dwarf planet. Being ten and a fan of underdogs, I was understandably offended on Pluto's behalf. But it's been almost twenty years since then, and some grown-ups still haven't gotten over it! This book addresses the history of Pluto, and also the way grown-ups hold onto ideas about the world even when our scientific understanding changes. One half of Piera's October "Science Sure Does Change!" Special.
This is maybe the best follow up to Dracula I have ever read, and trust me when I say I have read a lot. Gothic and sensual and capital R Romantic, Gibson captures the cultural feeling of Dracula while fleshing out the three brides and giving us their dark and bloody story. Vampire fans will not want to miss out on this ravenous story swathed in romance.
In Alexis Henderson’s newest Gothic horror, you’ll find vampires that are only slightly well-behaved, a feral yet fascinating court, and a quickly passionate romance that threatens to devour the thing the protagonist holds most dear: her life.
Foul Lady Fortune is Chloe Gong at her finest. The story is truly an adventure from start to finish, with a cast of familiar characters you grow to love more and more as the pages fly by. Rendered in a freshly cinematic hand that carries you through the hopeful and the heartbreaking, Lady Fortune and her crew will make you think you're safe from the havoc, just as they reach in and gouge your heart straight out from your chest. This book is genuinely, in every sense of the word, an absolute marvel. What a pleasure it is, to suffer so sweetly!
When the boss at burnt-out Lizze Chung's law firm gives her time off to relax, she doesn't know what to do with herself. Enter Lizzie's childhood friend Jack Park.

Perfect for fans of Emily Henry and Ashley Poston, Booked on a Feeling is whirlwind of a love story that captures exactly what it's like to fall headfirst off a cliff into the arms of someone safe.
If you read Alone With You in the Ether and developed Aldo's fascination with bees, The Honeys is nothing like it but it does have bees. Alternatively, this book could be pitched as a YA version of Mona Awad's Bunny, except there are bees and it's summertime."
I can't get enough of Bree Paulson's adorable characters! I'm so happy to see the return of garlic and her other adorable little veggie friends. So sweet, a little spooky, and so well drawn.
