I love novels-in-verse because they encourage a deep connection between the reader and the narrator of the story. Izzy Kline handles changes in her family and friendships with a lot of humor and insight
I’m looking forward to reading all the books in Jason Reynolds TRACK series, which tells the story of an inner-city youth track team. Ghost’s voice is funny, cool, but also full of hurt. His story reminded me what a big difference a coach can make in a kid’s life.
Being Fishkill by Ruth Lehrer
This book reminded me of THE GREAT GILLY HOPKINS and DICEY’S SONG. It’s dark, real, and wonderful.
