Barely Functional Adult: It’ll All Make Sense Eventually by Meichi Ng

Meichi Ng’s smart, funny, honest book of illustrated personal essays captures all the feels of growing up and finding one’s place in adulthood. Full of absurdity, awareness, and universal truths in all their most comic, most awkward, most endearing forms, this sweet little blue blob of non-gendered protagonist is a great storyteller, an emotional touchstone, and my new best friend. Perfect for fans of Allie Brosh and Jomny Sun or anyone in need of a humorous dose of youthful tenderness. — Melinda

You Had Me at Hola by Alexis Daria

This modern-day Latinx rom-com was so fun, smart, and sexy! Jasmine and Ashton both have a lot on the line as stars of Carmen in Charge—a telenovela remake for a mainstream US audience—and aren’t looking for love. The immediate tension (sexual and otherwise) between the two plays out against each other’s ambition (and secrets) in the real-life world of television acting and production. This story is as much about community and family as it is about romance. — Jocelyn

Punching the Air by Ibi Zoboi & Yusef Salaam

Every so often I come across a book that I want to buy a hundred copies of and give it to everyone I know, and maybe a few strangers. These are usually the hardest to review as I am simply at a loss for words. Punching the Air, a novel in verse about a wrongfully imprisoned Black teenager, co-written by one of the Exonerated Five, is one of those books—incomparably beautiful, radical, poignant, and so much more. Don't miss it! —Ksenia

The Language of Ghosts By Heather Fawcett

Fawcett has crafted an entertaining new fantasy where the action almost never stops, reminiscent of Diana Wynne Jones, Rick Riordan, and Eva Ibbotson. Assassins, a floating island, invisible cats, deadly and snarky sea serpents, self-absorbed otters, and fascinating magic tangle with a relatable protagonist trying to do right by her family and world. I loved the questions of “good and evil” and “right and “wrong” that Noa grapples with and following Noa and her siblings and friends on this adventure! —Jocelyn

Evelyn del Rey Is Moving Away By Meg Medina

Newbery medalist Meg Medina hits it out of the park in her third picture book offering. This heartfelt story of the depth of childhood friendship warmed my heart. Sánchez’s art is a perfect pairing for Medina’s words, allowing readers into Daniela and Evelyn’s world, highlighting the pairs’ spunk and imagination, and making the heart of their bond apparent. An ode to friendship, this wonderful book is perfect for readers of all ages! —Stephanie

Sometimes People March By Tessa Allen

“Sometimes ants march./Sometimes bands march./ Sometimes people march.” These opening lines lead readers into an understanding of why people march. The fine line ink and watercolor illustrations are lovely and key, providing examples of protests as disparate (and similar!) as suffragettes, water protectors, racial justice and LGBTQ advocates, and more. I loved the diversity of the reasons people resist, the ways they resist, and among the people themselves. A timely introduction to the importance of protest (with useful backmatter to boot!). —Stephanie

Sitting Pretty: The View from My Ordinary Resilient Disabled Body by Rebekah Taussig

Part memoir, part manifesto, Sitting Pretty challenges all of us to imagine a world that is accessible and that invites disabled people to be a part of our most important communications. Rebekah Taussig addresses sticky situations of exclusion and ableism with humor and tact. This book truly made me laugh out loud and made me hopeful for a future that considers all bodies—not for some inclusion award, but because when everyone is included in the conversation we all win. —Celeste
