Picture Books

Malcolm X grew to be one of America’s most influential figures. But first, he was a boy named Mmalcolmlittlealcolm Little. Written by his daughter, this inspiring picture book biography celebrates a vision of freedom and justice.

Bolstered by the love and wisdom of his large, warm family, young Malcolm Little was a natural born leader. But when confronted with intolerance and a series of tragedies, Malcolm’s optimism and faith were threatened. He had to learn how to be strong and how to hold on to his individuality. He had to learn self-reliance.

Together with acclaimed illustrator AG Ford, Ilyasah Shabazz gives us a unique glimpse into the childhood of her father, Malcolm X, with a lyrical story that carries a message that resonates still today—that we must all strive to live to our highest potential.

 

Juvenile Fiction

“Gregor the Overlander” series by Suzanne Collins – Nothing like her Hunger Games trilogy for teens, this first book in the five book series  “The Underland Chronicles” is engaging and full of action along with interesting character development.  If you like this one the rest of the series will be perfect for you!

“True (…Sort Of)” by Katherine Hannigan – A powerful yet quiet book.  Delly is a prime example of the power of words as she begins to assume the identity that the adults in her life believe fits her.  A moment about two-thirds of the way through the book takes you by surprise and this one will stay with you for awhile.

“The Trouble With May Amelia” by Jennifer L. Holm – Interesting look at the lives of immigrants through the eyes of May Amelia, an American born Finnish girl.  Not much action but lots of character development.

 

Young Adult

“Every Day” by David Leviathan – Every day a different body.  Every day a different life.  Every day in love with the same girl.  This intriguing and wildly different book which makes you contemplate the complexities of love.  Truly difficult to put down once you pick it up!

“Ask the Passengers” by A.S. King – I’m a huge fan of Amy’s work and her latest book is another triumph!  This story features a character struggling to break free to society’s definitions and encourages the reader to question everything.  Find your happiness and define yourself!  I highly recommend.Knife-of-Never2

“Knife of Never Letting Go” by Patrick Ness – The first book in the Walking Chaos trilogy, this one grips  you from page one and it’s impossible to put it down!  A science fiction novel unlike any I’ve ever read, the characters are rich, the situations exciting and you’ll be dying to talk to someone about it.  Book two is “The Ask and The Answer” and book three is “Monsters of Men”.
