This raw, emotional, experimental story is a powerful read. In turns melancholy, brutal, and funny, this is an innovative look at loneliness and sexuality.

An extremely thoughtful and moving examination of death that focuses on the honor of being with someone when they die. A complex read that isn't easy but is worth it.

Back matter, as well as a nod in the publisher's description, explains that often female victims of white supremacy and lynching are overlooked in history. Here, they take center stage, and the stories of Lamb, Marion, and their family will stick with me for a long time. A brutal but beautiful read.

Come for the cover, stay for the spooky story full of atmospheric weirdness, ghosts, and bugs. Don't forget the bugs.

I ended up burning through this super-readable book about love, identity, and trans joy and can't wait to see what else Underhill does.

This moving and well-written story about one kid's experience in the foster care system is so full of heart. Mo's story will stick with me for a long time. A great read.

This is one of those books that is nice to read and seems perfectly fine, but then becomes something bigger, something better, something different.

It's I Love to Read Month and post-it note reviews would be a great way to allow students, staff, and librarians to show off their recommended reads!

Lizzy Mason puts it all here on the page---the grief and guilt are palpable. The despair is crushing. It's not an easy read. But it's an important one.
