We all love WINK (Surviving Middle School With One Eye Open) by author/illustrator Rob Harrell. Ross Maloy just wants to be a normal seventh grader. He doesn’t want to lose his hair, or wear a weird hat, or deal with the disappearing friends who don’t know what to say to “the cancer kid.” But with his recent diagnosis of a rare eye cancer, blending in is off the table. Based on Rob Harrell’s real life experience, and packed with comic panels and spot art, this incredibly personal and poignant novel is an unforgettable, heartbreaking, hilarious, and uplifting story of survival and finding the music, magic, and laughter in life’s weirdness. (Grades 4 - 7)
Back in stock! We highly recommend STAMPED: RACISM, ANTIRACISM AND YOU by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi. Jason (the National Ambassador of Young People’s Literature) said of his book, “I think we have a rare opportunity to give the historical context of how we made it here today. This is the definitive history of race in America from the 1400s to today. It’s not about how to fix it per se. It’s just about contextualizing why it is the way it is.” (age 12 to adult)
We love ONE LITTLE BAG: AN AMAZING JOURNEY by Henry Cole! This wordless picture book is “beautifully effective as both nostalgia trip and a lesson in conservation.” — Kirkus, starred review (ages 4-7)

FOR EVERY ONE is exactly that: for everyone. For every one person. For everyone who has a dream. But especially for every kid. For kids who dream of being better than they are. Kids who dream of doing more than they dare to imagine. “A lyrical masterpiece.” —School Library Journal (started review)
