The Fall of Innocence by Jenny Torres Sanchez

Let us be clear: this book will absolutely break you.

A Land of Permanent Goodbyes by Atia Abawi

This story of refugees escaping from war-torn Syria is masterfully told by a refugee herself and foreign news correspondent Atia Abawi. While this is one family’s story, it is also the timeless tale of all wars, of all tragedy, and of all strife. This book is a sobering look at a very current topic.


The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik by David Arnold

If you’ve ever read a David Arnold book you know that it’s going to make you feel. (Mosquitoland or Kids of Appetite, anyone?) In his latest novel, sixteen-year-old Noah is hypnotized and quickly realizes nothing in his life is the same. It’s about all the ways we hurt our friends without knowing it, and all the ways they stick around to save us. Out 5/22!
