Alone is a middle grade novel in verse that follows the story of Maddie and her Rottweiler George as they settle into the aftermath of a surprise evacuation of their small town. Abandoned and entirely alone, Maddie and George have to figure out creative ways to survive, though they quickly find out that the hardest part about this is not fighting off packs of wild animals, but rather the bone-deep loneliness of total isolation from the rest of the world. Perfect for any kiddos and adults who enjoy a gripping story and a plotline that is superbly unexpected.

A perfect summer read for any middle-grade reader with sisters! I read this book when it first came out, and it is part of what jumpstarted my love for reading. The story follows four sisters' adventures over their summer vacation at a family estate. It has been fifteen years since I first read it along with my sisters, and we still make reference to it, specifically the M.O.P.S. (Meeting of the Penderwick Sisters) and M.O.O.P.S. (Meeting of the Older Penderwick Sisters) of which we created our own variation.

This graphic memoir about Laura Gao's experience as a queer immigrant from Wuhan to Texas is great — funny, infuriating, and heart wrenching in turns, with a really smart and compelling approach to rendering bilingual conversation. Throw in Laura Gao and Weiwei Xu's expressive lines, gorgeous palettes, and energetic composition, and you've got a really lovely comic!
