A raunchy, hallucinatory collection that sticks to your mind like gum on your shoe, because Carle also portrays experiences in poetic prose. I am still nodding my head at several of their observations made in the stories. [Blanca]

Wow, this picture book caught me off guard. A seemingly simple fable that was unexpectedly moving. It's about embracing the unknown and the possibilities that come along with it. This would be a great book for a kid anxious about trying something new or who's entering a period of transition or uncertainty. [Adrienne]

I like sad boys okay. A book can rip my heart out and stomp on it, as long as I'm promised and HEA in the end, I will endure. And there is a satisfying HEA in the end but it's hard fought and read it's without its bumps. This is far from a rom-com and Alec causes a lot of heartache, the story is beautiful and so worth it in the end. [Danielle]

What do you want from me? It's gay, there's monsters, and disability rep. It's really sweet, a little sexy, and has an honest conversation about how blind people are treated in Japan. It's authentic and standalone which is rare in manga. It's not often a story feels like it was made for me but this was kind of was. [Danielle]

Secret's out: I love baseball. This charming, sexy sports romance was a super fun way to start the season, although you certainly don't need to like baseball as much as me to fall in love with Gene and Luis. Pro baseball in this book celebrates queer and trans players/coaches, while not downplaying the discrimination they experience both in the story and the real world. KT Hoffman really knocked it out of the park with this debut! [Adrienne]

This is a delightful picture book of poems about twenty-seven creatures and the places they call home. It's Mary Oliver for kids. The colorful, pencil-like illustrations are also absolutely gorgeous. Creative, educational, beautiful to look at - what more could you want? [Adrienne]
