Picture Books

Aaron Becker’s newest and most powerful book is a modern day ark story with a tenderhearted robot named NOA as the main character. A quote at the beginning of this otherwise wordless picture book is from Jane Goodall and that sets the tone for this timely tale of destruction and rebuilding, of loss and hope and most of all, of caring and compassion.  Becker’s incredible drawings will certainly be the beginning of meaningful conversations with people of all ages.  As with all of his books, there is much to take in, so take your time and know that you will want to revisit it again and again. -Holly


Middle Grade

Nat's middle school adventures continue in All is Nat Lost.  This time with a class trip to Philadelphia-which is full of twists and turns.  Nat is a very real and funny kid who learns about relying on friends, being responsible, and earning her parents' trust.  This is another fun story with Nat and friends, complete with the Liberty Bell and Rocky statue. Be sure to check out the entire series about Nat, her pets, and her friends! -Kelly

If you were to step onto metro train and instead of going to the very next station on the route, it could take you anywhere in the world, where would you go? In the blink of an eye, eighteen-year-old Ruby Santos can go from San Francisco to Italy or Norway. But these train lines are guarded by secretive groups that use them to transport illicit goods (quite literally an underground black market). Transporting these goods is Ruby's only hope to save her home and help her ailing father, but her morals (and a really charming boy) are causing detours in her plans. A super-inventive contemporary fantasy that feels like a love letter to public infrastructure and art. -Gigi


Adult

In this amazing memoir, Kao Kalia Yang tells of her mother's life by literally putting herself in her mother's shoes, using Tswb (pronounced "chew") Moua's voice as Tswb journeys from Laos to Thailand to America as a Hmong refugee. Her story is heartbreaking, heartwarming--and inspiring; nothing else matters but the survival of her children. Isn't that why we honor our mothers, because they are ready to give their lives for us? -Barb
