Our youngest reviewer has great taste:
This historical fantasy is a imaginative, heart-wrenching, roller-coaster of a book set in the late 1800's about a chimney-sweep/climber girl who almost dies in a chimney fire, but is saved by a soot golem who becomes her companion. This adventure is a great story for 5th, 6th, and 7th graders but is a great story for parents and young-adult readers also. I highly reccommend Sweep as a tear-jerking, thoughtful, and insightful novel.
This is a great book about a transgender girl that I recommend for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. George doesn't know how to tell people that she's a girl, and so when her grade's class play is of Charlotte's Web, her favorite book, she is determined to play Charlotte. This story was heart-warming, fun-to-read, and an absolute joy.
A young-adult/teenage novel that is heartwrenching and tear-jerking about a 17 year-old Lake, survivor of a car crash that killed her best friend and boyfriend. However, they don't have to be gone forever. Technology allows one ressurection per citizen, on their eighteenth birtday, and she is each family's best choice of getting their child back. Lake must choose soon as her birthday draws closer, and also take into consideration a secret promise she made long ago to resurrect another person, who's still alive. As Lake tries to decide, secrets and betrayals close in on her. This is a sad, beautiful book that is a great read.
