I just want to give Gwendolyn a hug -- or share a weighted blanket with her. Carter captures so much about being neuroatypical -- the longing for an official term to define yourself, the constant trying to get things right, and how important it is to have people who get you even when they don't understand everything going on in your head.

I read this books months ago and I still can't stop thinking about it. I'm usually good at guessing where a plot is going. Not this one. It caught me off guard time and time again in the best ways. I won't say too much so you can be surprised as well, but read on if you like sketchy AIs, secret conspiracies, and two boys who aren't quite enemies becoming a lot more than friends.

Thundercluck is a great tale about a chicken who isn't quite sure if he has what it takes to defeat his nemesis, the Under Chef, but he does know his friend, Brunhilda, is counting on him. And if you're listening to Thundercluck's story, the narration includes a certain chicken's voice as he fights, frolics, and flies toward his destiny, which turns out to be perfectly sized after all.

In Some Girls Do, Morgan, a high-level high school track star who has been forced to transfer from her Catholic high school because she's queer, falls for Ruby, a closeted bisexual girl who competes in beauty pageants to please her mom but whose true love is fixing cars. This is the truest, most beautiful, thoughtful, and heart-wrenching examination of teen queerness I've read in a long time and I can't recommend it highly enough.

The Arrival is great for kids (and grown-ups!) whose favorite part of picture books is the illustrations. Packed with delightfully imaginative detail and a masterclass in visual storytelling, The Arrival is a bittersweet (but mostly sweet!) narrative of immigration, loneliness, and making a new home in an alien world.
