It's my professional opinion that Camila Sosa Villada is headed to the literary stratosphere. Her debut novel 'Bad Girls' blew me away and this new story collection is no different - perhaps an even better demonstration of her range, style, and originality. An incredible talent whose work centers trans experiences, particularly those of sex workers. [Adrienne]

Yakima-raised Noé Álvarez chronicles his search for answers about his paternal grandfather and his own identity as a man, as the son of Mexican immigrants, and as a new father. Álvarez is a superb storyteller and I was enchanted by the rich musical history of the accordion woven throughout the book, particularly the interviews with other players and instrument makers.

Read it in one sitting, and I can't stop thinking about it! What is love? What is marriage? Who do you love and why?? There are quotes in here I want to put on sticker paper and stick them all over town. [Blanca]

Want to look closely on how the media can manipulate and control our perspectives on violence against women? Barjola analyzes with a fine-tooth comb the Alcasser case, which shook Spain back into a 'sexist political regime' and struck down much of the progress feminists had made. It is thought-provoking, and also reframes a lot of Foucault's ideas. There should be more conversations about this if representation matters. [Blanca]

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]
