Squeezed by Alissa Quart

Journalist Alissa Quart investigates the increasing barriers and burdens forcing families with children out of middle-class security. Kids are a luxury item in an economy where the proverbial golden ticket to security—education—is more often a ticket to overwhelming debt, unpaid overtime, side gigs, and a lack of job security. Quark’s combination of research and diverse personal narratives is fascinating, relatable, and galvanizing. - Clara

The Honey Bus by Meredith May

The Honey Bus is immersive and gripping, a heart-soaking experience. May tenderly lays forth the intricacies of bees and beekeeping (just as her grandpa presented them to her); the glories of Big Sur are delicately rendered; and the girl saved by bees is courageous, lovable, and fierce in the face of heart-piercing pain. May has written a page-turner for all readers. - Chorel

African Samurai by Thomas Lockley & Geoffrey Girard

Kidnapped in northeast Africa as a boy and sold off into slavery in the 16th century, the man who would later be known as Yasuke made a long and brutal journey across the world. He served as a soldier in India and later as a bodyguard to Jesuit priests, who brought him to the place he would eventually call home, Japan. Told with the insight of a historian and the skill of a seasoned author, The African Samurai is the perfect historical tale for any modern-day warrior thriving in a foreign land. - Aric

Fall; or, Dodge in Hell by Neal Stephenson

We are so excited for this latest offering from Neal Stephenson, especially since we'll get the chance to ask about it in person at his event with us on June 6th, 2019. The story follows Dodge, a wealthy tech magnate who dies suddenly, leaving behind instructions that he’s to be cryogenically frozen and his brain saved for the moment he can be rebooted, so to speak. Knowing Stephenson, what follows is sure to be a thought-provoking look at life, the after-life, and everything in between. Don’t miss our event with Neal Stephenson on June 6th.

Varina by Charles Frazier

We are long overdue to have the perspective of women who lived through and impacted important moments in history. Varina, by brilliant Cold Mountain novelist Charles Frazier, aims to give voice to Varina Howell, the wife of Confederate leader Jefferson Davis, during the last days of the Civil War. As we watch her flee both her failing marriage and the bounty on her head, we witness her struggles with complicity and prejudices in the darkest moments in our nation’s history. A great addition to historical fiction.                                          —Casey

¡Pio Peep! written by Alma Flor Ada, F. Isabel Campoy & Alice Schertle, illus. by Viví Escrivá

These 29 sweet Spanish nursery rhymes are about things kids and their grown-ups like best: frogs and elephants, piñatas and cinnamon bread, wide-open fields and your own cozy bed. The English adaptations, with their own rhythm and charm, are equally delightful to read aloud. Each poem is accompanied by beautiful paintings that gave my grandson and me even more to talk about—once he stopped dancing to the poems. - Cat

Where Are You From? written by Yamile Saied Méndez illus. by Jaime Kim

A girl and her abuelo explore what it means to carry a sense of belonging with you through the world, especially when that world seems convinced you’re firmly in the “other” category. Méndez’s moving language and Kim’s epic illustrations take the reader on a sweeping journey from mountaintop to stormy sea, all wrapped in the warmth of a hug from a beloved grandparent. - Ilana

Where Are You From? written by Yamile Saied Méndez illus. by Jaime Kim

I must admit I cried (in a coffee shop) when I reached the spread about the protagonist coming from her abuelo’s heart and the hearts of their ancestors. As an Afro-Latinx person, I especially appreciated Méndez acknowledging the African ancestry many Latinx people share. I wish I’d had this lyrical, beautiful, and moving book as a child. - Stephanie

A Good Kind of Trouble by Lisa Moore Ramée

Ramée’s debut novel explores the awkwardness of middle school, the changing dynamics with friends, and getting “woke.” I found fallible and funny (with her “allergy” to trouble) Shayla utterly relatable as she navigates her feelings about an incident of race-based police violence and struggles to decide whether breaking the rules is sometimes the right choice. Books that examine race often fall short, painting with broad strokes, but this book avoids that misstep—it’s right on target, addressing essential nuances with courage and honesty. - Stephanie

Orange for the Sunsets by Tina Athaide

Ugandan Asha and Yesofu have always been best friends, though their worlds couldn’t be more different; Asha has grown up surrounded by wealth and privilege, while Yesofu lives in poverty, working as Asha’s family’s servant. Neither gave their differences much thought until a political crisis forces them to reckon with their identities and the limits of their friendship. Based on historical events, this poignant, heartbreaking tale about xenophobia and prejudice couldn’t be more timely. - Katherine
