What we’re reading & discussing:
Bone Gap by Laura Ruby
Published by Balzer + Bray, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers
Told from alternating viewpoints, Bone Gap perfectly melds elements of fairy tales, myths, gothic romance, and magic realism into the story of Finn, who lives in a town with gaps in the very fabric of time and place.
The Ghosts of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick
Published by Roaring Brook Press, an imprint of Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group
Sedgwick connects four seemingly disparate stories, each of which feature a character haunted by the ever-present shape of a spiral. Spanning time, space, and genre, each story raises powerful questions about human nature.
Out of Darkness by Ashley Hope Pérez
Published by Carolrhoda Lab™, an imprint of Carolrhoda Books, a division of Lerner publishing Group
In 1937 East Texas, Mexican American Naomi and African American Wash begin a bittersweet romance. Perez’s beautifully crafted novel is a moving portrayal of both powerful love and a period marked by oppressive, destructive racism.
