Saleena's reviews 4/8/17
This book won all kinds of awards, so I picked it up because "I should keep up"; and I should....but this is also a touching story of a young person trying to deal with their sexuality and nonconformity in a world that demands conformity and for people to pick a gender & stay there. Riley starts a blog as a way to work through things, but when the blog goes public (no spoilers, you knew it was going to happen) life becomes much more complicated for this already emotionally fragile soul. This isn't the best book ever written; however, it is an emotional one that tackles a subject not often discussed....so it is worth the time.
I fell in love with Moon Girl the moment I started reading. Yes, she is a bit young; but the stories aren't for little kids, because she is struggling with her gifts and her worries in a world of superheroes (and villains). I adore this series and can't wait to read more about the little scientist girl who accidentally bonds with a time travelling magical dinosaur.....it's funny and touching and awesome!
(And if you don't know who Congressman & Civil Rights leader, John Lewis is; this is your chance to find out.)
Lumberjanes is a fun, funny comic series set in the best (or worst) summer camp ever. You will fall in love with the characters, their dilemmas and their adventures. Read them....read them all.
The Rules is a creepy, suspenseful action thrill ride. It grabs you from the first page and doesn't let go. Someone has changed a scavenger hunt and made it deadly.....who did it? Who will survive? Who will die (and how)? At the beginning of each chapter is a rule from the person who is telling the story...the voices alternate among all the players. I couldn't stop reading this and assume there will be a move soon.....really.
