Elegant and imaginative, this novella presents Binti, a brave, young Himba woman whose gift and intrinsic connection with mathematics allows her to bring harmony where others only see chaos.  When she breaks her people's tradition of staying Earth-bound in their homeland to be the first Himba to attend the reknowned Oomza University, she has to face trials much more dangerous than discrimination.  Will she be able to bring peace to warring factions?  If she does, will her family forgive her for abandoning her home?  [Lydia]

Published: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers - November 22nd, 2016

Neal Shusterman, the mastermind behind the Unwind dystology, has created another unique world of the not-so-distant future.  Humanity has found a way to conquer that truly final frontier: death.  Keeping the population in check, though, is still necessary, and scythes have that duty.  Shusterman gives us two characters, Citra and Rowan, to root for and worry over as they apprentice under the same scythe (and fall for one another) knowing that only one of them can make it through successfully.  I can't wait for the next book in this new series! [Lydia]

Sad Animal Facts By Brooke Barker Cover Image
ISBN: 9781250095084
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Flatiron Books - September 6th, 2016

Like a tabloid for the animal kingdom, this book brings you the most unfortunate gossip about our world's denizens. Dwarf lemurs? They coat their homes with poo. Baby giraffes? They fall 6 ft to the ground when born. Whimsical illustrations provide the perfect fodder for starting awkward conversations with strangers. [sweet pea]

WHEREAS: Poems By Layli Long Soldier Cover Image
ISBN: 9781555977672
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Graywolf Press - March 7th, 2017

I want to carry Layli Long Soldier's book WHEREAS with me everywhere I go. Language is the "oil on the surface"- a doorway in which Long Soldier experiments with syntax in brilliant and heartbreaking ways as she negotiates the politics of land and of the body. This poetry collection is a personal and political necessity for 2017. Nicole
