Young Adult Reviews

Sara Faring; Imprint; September 2019; 464 pages
“Faring is brilliant in her placing of small, blink-and-you’ll-miss-them clues within recognizable tropes, and the pacing pulls readers along what appear to be innocuously familiar plot points until they go off the map into a disorienting but wildly imaginative topsy-turvy world.” --The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (BCCB), starred review


The Washington Post features a three-page cover story on authors Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr in the August 15 Local Living section. Check it out here.

Middle Grade and Chapter Book Reviews:

BORN TO FLY: The First Women's Air Race Across America
Steve Sheinkin; Roaring Brook; September 2019; 288 pages
While it can be challenging to follow all the different flyers chronicled here, the overall impact is one of gathering momentum and soaring past boundaries.” --The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (BCCB), starred review

CROSSING ON TIME: Steam Engines, Fast Ships, and a Journey to the New World (FOURTH STARRED REVIEW!!)
David Macaulay; Roaring Brook; May 2019; 128 pages
“Beyond the impressive scholarship and impeccable draftsmanship, Macaulay rounds out the reading experience with moments of humor (both written and visual), pleasingly atmospheric spreads, and a humanistic view of applied science.” --Horn Book, starred review

Mariko Nagai; Christy Ottaviano/Henry Holt; October 2019; 304 pages
“If there were only one reason to read this book, let it be for Natsu. The child forced by circumstance to grow up to soon is an omnipresent figure both throughout history and in present-day refugee communities...Published for middle-grade readers but necessary for all of humankind, Under the Broken Sky is a breathtaking work of literature.” --Booklist, starred review

Graphic Novels Reviews

Shannon Hale; illustrated by LeUyen Pham; First Second; August 2019; 256 pages
“A terrific look at middle school culture, and a compelling sequel to a fabulous middle grade graphic memoir.” --School Library Journal, starred review

Jason Walz, First Second, October 2019; 240 pages
“An extraordinary sequel that is thrilling, inclusive, and unforgettable.” --Kirkus, starred review

OPEN BORDERS: The Science and Ethics of Immigration
Bryan Caplan; illustrated by Zack Weinersmith; First Second; 250 pages
“Regardless of readers’ immigration politics, economics professor Caplan (The Myth of the Rational Voter, 2008) will provoke: ‘Let’s put this in perspective,’ he writes..His partner-in-insight Weinersmith provides crisp, easy-to-grasp artistic support.” --Booklist, starred review

Rainbow Rowell; illustrated by Faith Erin Hicks; First Second; August 2019; 224 pages

Art by Hicks (Comics Will Break Your Heart) turns the sweetly witty dialogue by Rowell (Carry On) into a miniature autumn universe...but it’s the primary characters’ authentic friendship—built over several seasons working alongside one another—and the variously inclusive cast that really bring this funny last-day story home.” --Publishers Weekly, starred review 

“Rowell’s dialogue is sharp and punchy, while Hicks’s panel illustrations, dominated by various shades of purple, orange, red, and yellow, expertly capture the lovable main characters and the entertaining particulars of this autumnal setting...let’s hope this isn’t the last graphic novel collaboration between Rowell and Hicks.” --Horn Book

Picture Book Reviews:

Kevin Noble Maillard; illustrated by Juana Martinez-Neal; Roaring Brook; October 2019; 48 pages
“Using brief statements that begin ‘fry bread is,’ Maillard, who is a member of the Mekusukey band of the Seminole Nation tribe, creates a powerful meditation on the food as ‘a cycle of heritage and fortune.’” --Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Maillard and Martinez-Neal bring depth, detail, and whimsy to this Native American food story...Fry bread becomes a metaphor for resilience.” --Booklist, starred review

IT FEELS GOOD TO BE YOURSELF: A Book About Gender Identity
Theresa Thorn; illustrated by Noah Grigni; Henry Holt, May 2019; 45 pages

A must-have for all libraries serving children. --School Library Journal: XpressReviews, starred review

Barbara McClintock; Farrar, Straus and Giroux; July 2019; 32 pages
“Annie’s journey is epic, one that gleefully bypasses all geographical logic, where “it was a fine evening for a drive” proves, delightfully, to be an understatement.” --Horn Book, starred review
