How I Discovered Poetry written by Marilyn Nelson, illustrated by Hadley Hooper

Unrhymed sonnets tell the story of Nelson’s 1950s youth, spent mostly on air force bases and in predominantly white communities. A culminating scene—in which she must read aloud a poem containing racist language—leads to a realization of the power of words. Black-and-white photographs and spare, blue-tinted illustrations allow readers space to visualize Nelson’s detailed imagery. Grades 6 and up. —Horn Book Fanfare 2014

Well, That Was Awkward by Rachel Vail

Everyone needs Gracie to be fine. So, she’s fine with people accidentally bringing up her sister who died before she was born. She’s fine when her crush, AJ, turns out to have feelings for her best friend, Sienna. She’s even fine when Sienna asks her to write text messages to AJ for her, like some sort of middle school Cyrano. Engaging and well written. Gracie’s hilarious voice shines in an otherwise awkward situation. Grades 6–8. - Ivy
