I keep forcing my friends to read this AMAZING poetry book! The poems in this book are stripped of all pomp, frill, and unnecessary imagery, and focus, instead, on breaking down stereotypes of what it means to be Native American in modern, sociological landscapes. Pico delivers his message in down-to-earth, colloquial language, making his poetry incredibly accessible to younger generations. [Christina]
A heartbreaking, yet gentle novel about self-discovery and resilience. [Stacy]

Bob-Waksberg looks at romance from all angles in a wonderfully absurd way. At the core they are love stories but they are also about doors to other dimensions where your teeth fall out, gene splicing dead presidents, and deciding how many goats to sacrifice at your wedding. [Karen]
This little beauty is a wonderful traveling companion! In it, D’Ors advocates for more meditation and silence in our daily lives, especially in light of our increasingly busy-busy lives. Overall, this book is a delightful combination of Zen Buddhism and Christian principles, and the chapters are short and non-preachy. Pass the book on when you’re done! [Christina]

A positively fascinating book about humankind’s most nefarious killer. The mosquito has shaped history, culture, and population unlike any other creature that has ever existed. We are powerless against the mosquito and her determination to survive at the expense of almost all living things. [Stacy]
Seering, lyrical, riveting. This is everything I could want in a collection of poems. [Karen]
When I picked up this graphic novel, I didn’t expect to get pulled into the dystopian story so quickly or deeply! The narrative centers around humanity’s relationship to technology and how we’re flirting with giving up autonomy for the sake of connectivity and “progress.” The nihilist in you will delight at the unexpected plot turns, and the artist in you will be giddy with the overabundance of exceptional artwork.

OMG, the cutest book!! Tiny wants to hug his bestie, but feels like he’s too small to offer a really good hug. After practicing hugging on random objects, including a cactus (ouch!), he decides to offer what he can to his friend. As it turns out, intent and friendship are more important than ability. [Stacy]
A touching queer coming of age story. Pen goes through a lot as she learns about who she is, what she stands for and what she’s willing to fight for. Also Johnny is the best big brother in any YA novel ever. [Karen]
