Great books in both Sirens of Memory about a woman who flees an abusive relationships after the Iraqi invasion and Born Behind Bars, which is about child born in jail and released to the streets of Indian when he is nine.
Mix of reads - Red Wolf, which takes about residential schools, Paranorther, a graphic novel about magic and chaos bunnies, and Time Villians, an action middel grade book with historical figures.
Wonderful reads old and new reads for those who like middle grade or young adult.
From chickens and birds to playing in the rain and pulling pranks, I have been reading some fun - and perhaps inspiring - books.
I recommend both this books, The Immortal Boy for young adults and Just Like that for the middle grade set.
What a mix of books this month - from a book of poetry from woman poets from the Harlem Renaissance to a picture book of tiny creatures and love.
Despite the copious amounts of tears shed, I highly recommend this young adult book from Alberta author Sarah Everett.
