“An aquarium without an octopus, is like plum pudding without plums”. Montgomery’s prose has compelling narratives that hook you instantly, like the time an octopus grabbed hold of her wrists and almost pulled her in the tank. She weaves in informative passages while simultaneously breaking negative stereotypes surrounding the famed invertebrates. Her adventure towards knowledge, and the friendships she cultivates with these smart, individualized creatures, are both intriguing and heartwarming. It sucked me in! (pun intended) [Nicole]

I love a book that is willing to have the hard conversation. This book, written as a letter to his son, is provocative and fierce, an honest look at race in modern America. Ta-Nehisi Coates tears down our idols and tells the truth. It's hard to read at times, but there's also a lot of compassion here. Because it is written to his child, that love is there, that desire to see his son empowered by truth is there. Give this to everyone you know and let's have the conversation. I highly recommend reading this alongside Claudia Rankine's Citizen. [Kenny]
