We’re just two weeks away from the start of summer reading! While we get ready (and you sign up for laser tag) we have a couple new books to show off. Consider one of these as your inaugural read for the summer!
How I Resist: Activism and Hope for a New Generation, edited by Maureen Johnson.
Wednesday Books, 2018.
“Stand up and speak out!
“Now, more than ever, young people are motivated to make a difference in a world they’re bound to inherit. But with much to stand up and shout about, where do they begin?
“How I Resist is the way to start the conversation. An all-star collection of essays, songs, illustrations, and interviews about activism and hope, How I Resist features personal, sometimes funny, often irreverent, always instructive stories that will inspire reflection—and action.
“This guide will remind you that you are not helpless, and that you can be the change you wish to see in the world, in the news, and for your future.” From the publisher.
Animus, by Antoine Revoy.
First Second, 2018.
“Tucked away in a quiet Japanese neighborhood lies a peculiar playground.
“There, Hisao and Sayuri meet a masked ghost named Toothless. And there, one of their friends gets hurt.
“Now they must race against the clock to solve the mystery of who Toothless really is—and break the playground’s curse.
“Beautiful and eerie, Animus weaves an entrancing spell out of childish curiosity, folklore, friendship, and fears that lie deep in the human heart.” From the publisher.
