SLJ gives THE LAND OF FORGOTTEN GIRLS its 3rd Starred Review!:

“Once upon a time, Soledad had two sisters and two loving parents. But tragedy can happen to anyone at any time, and suddenly, Sol and her younger sister, Ming, are transplanted to the other side of the world in a run-down apartment in Louisiana, abandoned by their desperate father and left in the (so-called) care of an abusive stepmother. Sol’s only joyful memories have to do with stories, especially the fantastic adventures her lost mother shared starring the peripatetic, adventurous, world-hopping Auntie Jove. Buoyed by courage, and with new friends and a fairy faux-grandmother on her side, Sol just might figure out how to navigate this new world. Narrator Lulu Lam’s quintessentially youthful voice effortlessly blends a wide variety of emotions, backgrounds, and intensities. VERDICT Kelly’s nuanced, resonating story about life between two cultures, surviving loss, and finding family in the least expected places is ideal for any quality middle grade collection; extra points for superb multicultural representation as well. [“A charming and affecting novel about sisterhood, the magic of imagination, and perseverance” SLJ 12/15 starred review of the Greenwillow book.]”

AND happy pub day to YOU KNOW ME WELL by Nina LaCour and David Levithan!

“You Know Me Well perfectly encapsulates those fraught, end-all-be-all feelings of high-school romance and graduation. The raw emotion of this novel will delight fans of Rainbow Rowell and John Green.”
