Everything You Wanted To Know About Indians But Were Afraid To Ask by Anton Treuer — From the acclaimed Ojibwe author and professor Anton Treuer comes an essential book of questions and answers for Native and non-Native young readers alike. Ranging from “Why is there such a fuss about nonnative people wearing Indian costumes for Halloween?” to “Why are Indians so often imagined rather than understood?” Treuer answers these questions and more in a style consistently thoughtful, personal, and engaging. “An important resource about contemporary North American Indigenous peoples” (School Library Journal).
The Fall of Whit Rivera by Crystal Maldonado — Frenemies Whit and Zay have been at odds for years (ever since he broke up with her in, like, the most embarrassing way imaginable), so when they’re forced to organize the fall formal together, it’s a literal disaster. “A sentimental story about friendship, family, and love as sweet as a pumpkin spice latte” (Kirkus Reviews).
Forgive Me Not by Jennifer Baker — In this searing indictment of the juvenile justice system, one teen in detention weighs what she is willing to endure for forgiveness.

Give Me A Sign by Anna Sortino — Jenny Han meets CODA in this big-hearted debut about first love and Deaf pride at a summer camp. Seventeen-year-old Lilah, who wears hearing aids, returns to a summer camp for the Deaf and Blind as a counselor, eager to improve her ASL and find her place in the community, but she did not expect to also find romance along the way. “A sweet love story that also provides a nuanced and thoughtful exploration of some of the issues those in the Deaf community face” (School Library Journal).

Shosh Bell has dreams — high school theater legend, she’s headed to performing arts college in LA. Over it all, transcending time and space, a celestial bird brings strangers together: from an escaped murderer in 19th century Paris, to a Norwegian kosmonaut in low-earth orbit, something is happening that began long ago, and will long outlast Evan and Shosh. “Arnold’s prose is both lyrical and devastating, and the narrative’s focus on love and its apparent inevitability helps to lighten the intense tragedies the characters face” (Publishers Weekly).
