This delightful tale of a young girl on a quest to save her father kept me completely spellbound as I kept looking at each page, continually finding new details in the illustrations. We follow Marcy as she navigates the complicated world of ancient Egyptian gods and ventures into the mysterious realm of the Sphinx to find her father and bring him home. Good thing adventuring runs in the family!

The gorgeous book for all ages is more than an adventure through a forest. The lush illustrations play with negative space; some of the elements rise up from the page adding a tactile dimension to the book. Part meditation, part expedition, this book contains more than meets the eye.

Two storylines: During the McCarthy era, Janet balances her love for Marie with the need for secrecy about her sexuality. In 2018, Abbie discovers 1950s lesbian pulp novels and investigates a mysterious author. Their stories--linked by scenes from one of the pulp novels--end up intersecting.

A fun story about two smart girls in their space station home with their three-headed kitten named Princess, Sparkle, and Destroyer of Worlds. What's not to love? I really enjoyed the relationship treatment in the story, both with the girls' friendship, their familial relationships, and the relationships amongst coworkers on the station.

The perfect slightly-spooky autumn read, this is the story of Makepeace, a teenage girl with the ability to see, communicate, and bodily cohabit with ghosts. The plot deftly interweaves the supernatural with the events of the English Civil War, and the magic system feels creative and original. I loved Makepeace and all her ghosts.

Alexander (along with Mary Rand Hess) has done it again! Swing is a coming-of-age tale that feels accessible and urgent. Covering everything from baseball to high school romance, jazz to heartbreak, Swing tells the story of two best friends longing to express themselves. Their path to becoming seen might not always feel straightforward, but what does in high school?
