Floating in the pool like a starfish is the only place 11-year-old Ellie feels weightless. Everywhere else she is burdened by people’s perceptions of her. Bullied relentlessly about her weight, Ellie finds allies in her father, a therapist and her new next door neighbor and learns to stand up for herself, abandon her fat girl rules, and take up space, even outside the pool. Powerful, sometimes painful, kid-sized critique of diet culture and fat shaming.

Blue Sargent is the only one in her family of psychics without a gift. Each year, she goes with her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. She never sees them, until this year when a boy emerges and speaks to her. His name is Gansey, and he is a student at Aglionby, the local all-boys private school that Blue has a policy of staying away from. Along with three others, Gansey is on an important quest, and Blue finds herself quickly abandoning her policy of staying away from Raven Boys.

Whether you’ve read The Hazel Wood or not, these dark fairytales torn straight from its pages will haunt you long after you put it down. From girls made of ice who carve their way through the world to clockwork treasures that revolt against their master, these tales are just as dark and bloody as the original Brother’s Grimm, but rather than find morality tales, here there are only tales of power and survival. The perfect read for the long winter nights.

Simple but beautiful poetry paired with the most perfect of illustrations. The dual language presentation is great for those new to learning either language, or just new to reading in general. This is the type of book that speaks to any age.
