Space Opera by Catherynne Valente

This is what we’d get if Douglas Adams started writing in the ’80s instead of the ’70s. And was really into glam rock. And maybe had been jilted by David Bowie. And was, maybe, still a little in love with David Bowie. Decibel Jones and the Absolute Zeroes, washed-up glitter punk multiracial Brit extravaganza missing their last Zero, are to sing, fight, and f--make friends to save humanity. A glorious, Looney Tunes-driven ride through planets and punk rock emotions, and what’s worth saving. - Jocelyn

Something Old, Something New by Tamar Adler

When I read Tamar Adler’s first book, An Everlasting Meal, I was taken by her lovely way with words. There is a timeless quality to her writing, which makes the focus of her new book—rekindling classic recipes—a perfect pairing. From Steak Diane to Peach Melba, Oysters Rockefeller to Shrimp Scampi, Adler muses on the original recipes for these dishes, then updates them with modern techniques and flavors. Nostalgic, but forward thinking, this is food writing at its best. - S.B.

Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski

This is the book ladies have been waiting for, all the things we should have learned in sex education, but didn’t. Nagoski is a font of information and delivers it with expertise as well as understanding. I learned so much from this book; you need to read it! - Karena

Roomies by Christina Lauren

I’m a sucker for a good marriage of convenience plot, but imagine my surprise when it was in a contemporary romance instead of the typical historical. I love that Holland, the heroine, is not perfect. She’s a little bit of a mess yet she is relatable and I found myself rooting for her and Calvin. - Karena

Stone Mirrors by Jeannine Atkins

Atkins chose to write this searing biographical novel as a window into the difficult life of neoclassicist sculptor Edmonia Lewis. A woman of African-Haitian and Ojibwe descent, she attended Oberlin College in 1862, was expelled on trumped-up charges and, while working as a housekeeper in Boston, apprenticed to a sculptor. She studied in Italy and tenaciously worked toward artistic perfection in stone. Ages 13 and up. - Ga

The Explorer by Katherine Rundell

A plane crashes in the Amazon rainforest, and four children pull together to survive in this lush world, utterly alien to them. The flora and fauna, along with the smells, tastes, and sounds of the jungle, are vivid and sometimes terrifying. A secondary theme, winding like the river the children raft, examines the nature of curiosity, exploration, and imperialism. An environmentally aware, Amazonian adrenaline story for fans of Hatchet. Grades 4–8. - Ga

Three Pennies by Melanie Crowder

Through the San Francisco fog, clear-eyed 11-year-old Marin navigates the foster care system while waiting for her mother (who left years earlier) to return. When Dr. Lucy Chang steps up as a loving adoptive mother, tectonic plates shift and so does Marin’s understanding of family. An element of magical realism whisks through the fog in this old-fashioned, completely modern, short, tender novel. Grades 4–6. - Ga

Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds

Fifteen-year-old Will has to find the person who killed his older brother and kill him. That is the rule. He grabs his brother’s gun and takes the elevator down from his mom’s eighth-floor apartment. As he descends, the car stops on each floor and a person from his past steps in and speaks. These people—all dead—have been killed by the cycle of gun violence and poverty that ensnares Will. The author’s stark, fluid words are to be read in a single gulp, and the last line is killer, or hopefully not. Ages 12 and up. - Ga

This House, Once by Deborah Freedman

Follow along as we gently, dreamily behold each of the elements that make a house a home, from the front door “once a colossal oak tree” and the bricks “once mud that oozed around roots” to the window that “was sand once…melted to glass.” Misty, almost velvety, watercolors reveal both the history and the now of this home, as we come to see how our own house fits into the world outside our door. A cozy bedtime read. Ages 3–7. - Michelle

In late-Renaissance Italy, while restoring musical instruments for Prince Ferdinando de Medici, Cristofori dreams of and invents an instrument that can play as quietly as a clavichord and as loudly as a harpsichord. Priceman’s gouache and ink illustrations create a whimsical, musical energy. Grades K–3. - Ga
