If you put the Muppets in a theme park and added the heart of Steven Universe and some paranormal energy, you'd get Deadendia. It's an awesome mixture of humor, friendship, self-discovery, and drama with flawed characters you will love as much as your best friends. Heart-warming, heartbreaking, heart-pounding, and heartfelt!

Darius doesn't seem to fit in anywhere, and when he visits his grandparents in Iran for the first time, he expects more of the same. But as he gets to know his extended family and his ancestral country, he starts to believe there can be another way. Darius is a heartfelt, hilarious narrator and his story is unforgettable. Pick this up--you won't regret it.

I'm an adult, and I should read this keeping in mind the importance of education, and how things that seemed hard years ago weren't that hard in hindsight. But that being said I, like the protagonist, spent many, many days in grade school doing homework from the moment I got home until I went to bed. So I found this book extremely satisfying.

Danny has two problems--no one knows she's transgender, and she just inherited the powers of the world's greatest superhero--which also transformed her into a body that matches her gender identity. I couldn't stop reading and picked up the second book immediately.

I love Kadir Nelson’s artwork. He’s done some of my favorite New Yorker covers lately, and this book is a shining example of his ability to tell a great story through imagery. The allegory presented is simple but beautiful, and it’s a good lesson leading into a new school year. I also feel like the book is timely for the peak of summer harvests.

Think a group of costumed kids can't scare Darth Vader? In the words of the iconic Sith Lord, I find your lack of faith disturbing. Adam Rex's impeccable comedic timing makes this book a laugh-out-loud joy from start to finish (and yes, more than one Porter Square bookseller was literally laughing out loud).

It's rare to find a piece of tie-in media that is such a work of love for the characters, the world, and the fans, but Lost Legends delivers. Like the original show, it is equal parts spooky, hilarious, and sweet. It's packed with secrets, Easter eggs, and secret codes. Also? It's just plain fun.
