Legendary Teen Tiatn Starfire is back, this time with Mandy, her sullen teen daughter who is nothing at all like her mother- or so she thinks. Born without powers, Mandy has her own problems to worry about- like that fact she walked out of her SATs- without her mom's stardom getting in the way. But when an old face from Starfire's past appears and threatens everything she holds dear, Mandy will have to step up and find the power within herself to fight back. Beautiful art and characters, great for all ages!

If there is a single book in this world that is the epitome of the "teenage heartbreak anthem" genre, this is it. This is the one.

Told in a sharply bittersweet style and alternating timelines of past and present, Ellis's story will have readers on the edge of their seats, clutching their chests (and tissues boxes) as they teeter perilously between the quiet burn of heartbreak and the tremulous verge of tears. This is a book that reminds you to feel, that reminds you what it means to be human and to hurt and to love.

Ann Liang's debut is a poignant coming-of-age novel recounting the pains of growing up, set against the backdrop of an elite academy in Beijing. Following two overachieving students and their plights with a secret selling business, this is a story about class, about privilege, about what it means to fall in love with a world and the people that are not yours to keep.

This is a really beautifully illustrated counting book, and interestingly not all the counting is in numerical order, which is good for growing brains! It's also a lovely ode to the art of noticing, and really captures the feeling of being shipped to school from the sticks early every morning.
