A #1 New York Times bestseller, The Fault in Our Stars is not, as Hazel would put it, another one of those cancer stories where a kid with cancer starts a foundation for kids with cancer, because, as she said, that's just narcissistic.  When Hazel meets Augustus Waters at Cancer Kid Support Group, her whole story changes. She has always been terminal, destined to die from lung cancer, but now her life takes an unexpected turn.

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.

Published: Amulet Books - September 25th, 2018

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.
