Clara Tornvall does a wonderful job of giving any reader a working basis of information to go into the rest with. She gives scientific and historical context that help break up a lot of the stigmas that folks have about autism, along with making it easy to understand. As an autistic woman, I found it comforting to read of her experiences and find comfort in being able to relate. [Zephyr]

From the perspective of a librarian, a cat, and a boy, we get a lovely mystery story that gives tribute to little libraries, reading, and storytelling. I loved how it touched on themes of transition, with the protagonist worried about entering middle school, and of kids' relationships with their parents, focusing on the importance of communication between them. It was a cozy, optimistic book, perfect for a winter read! [Blanca]

Fans for drag rejoice! Whether you are a fan of Drag Race, Dargula, or just the art form in general, there is drink inspired by your favorite artist! The drinks even match their personas. If a queen is avant-garde and bombastic, the drink will be experimental with complex flavors. If they are feminine and sexy, the drink is more warm and sensual. Some are even bases on iconic moments and fashion. [Danielle]

My mind absolutely delighted in the word play, the alliteration, the form of these poems. Sax gives us the pig on various platters, and even how the poems are chapterized is clever! I expect to revisit this collection repeatedly, because I know I could find something new to marvel at each time. [Blanca]

This was a fascinating read! From Geena's life in the Philippines, where everyone follows the trans beauty pageants (making her a national celebrity), but trans and queer people have few rights, to her life in the US, where she initially wasn't out as trans to have a successful modeling career. I feel like i learned a lot and Rocero is an engaging narrator. [sweet pea]
