The End of Everything by Katie Mack

A book about the end of life, the universe, and everything? Right NOW? Pop-culture references and complex scientific concepts (made absolutely relatable and understandable!) aside, physicist Katie Mack is funny, educated, incredibly smart—and will make you feel the same. Mack’s passion will hook you through to the last (hilarious) footnote, leaving you exhilarated for what is still to be discovered (and following @AstroKatie on Twitter) before the end. - Jocelyn

Music is Momo's refuge, a gift that he hopes will shelter Junie through her childhood and an ocean of separation. It's a trans-Pacific love letter set amidst China's cultural revolution. Love exists in the unexpected everyday moments: music drifting from windows, flower bulbs, and hushed hellos. These small moments alter lives in profoundly meaningful ways. - Charlotte

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller

This timeless classic about an American bombardier in WWII fighting a system in which everything is against him is perfect for those of us who have felt trapped in an endless cycle of defeat this past year. Confusing and frustrating in the most coherent way possible, Catch-22 excellently embodies the absurdity of trying to navigate between survival and duty. - Magnolia

Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee

This is an intricate, unique, action-packed military sci-fi with a touch of space opera. Space battles line up next to political intrigue, while characters both living and dead wrestle with conscience and ideals. Yoon Ha Lee has created something that is familiar but at the same time unlike anything else I’ve ever read, which lingers long after the last page. - Jocelyn

This is a fun, vibrant, full-of-heart fairy tale set in the modern world that uses magic in the best way: to make the complexities of real life easier to understand.

Long Division by Kiese Laymon

From the author of the incredible memoir Heavy, this debut novel is spectacular. Kiese Laymon’s writing is so fast, so smooth, so electrifying; the story he tells so odd and heavy, satirical and raw; the characters so perfectly described. Long Division is poetry in prose form, and it’s also a rich examination of one Black teenager’s encounters with sexuality, racism, bullying, complex family dynamics, friendship, and the surreal. A deeply affecting, tender, and funny read. — Jess

Red Island House by Andrea Lee

I first stumbled upon Andrea Lee in 2019 when I read her incredibly haunting short story “The Children” in the New Yorker. When I saw that she had a novel coming out, I scooped it up immediately and was pleased to see that “The Children” was actually the second chapter. The novel tells the story of Shay, a Black woman from the US, who marries an older wealthy man from Italy. When her husband decides to build them a dream house on an idyllic beach on an island near Madagascar, Shay is determined to remain a “tourist” in her new home. But soon she's drawn into the affairs and intrigues of the surrounding community and is forced to confront, in very real ways, issues of heritage and identity, and the colonial legacy of a nearly forgotten corner of the world. — Rico

How to Change Everything: The Young Human’s Guide to Protecting the Planet and Each Other by Naomi Klein, with Rebecca Stefoff

Naomi Klein and Rebecca Stefoff’s new book is absolutely engrossing and informative. Inspired by stories of activists around the globe (especially from the Southern hemisphere and Indigenous communities), and galvanized by tales of corporate greed and historical analysis, I closed How to Change Everything and started immediately brainstorming what to do next. For any human (young or otherwise) who cares about climate change, the environment, and social justice, and wants to know more, this is a great place to start. —Jocelyn

Out of Nowhere by Chris Naylor-Ballesteros

I raced through this, so anxious to know the fate of Chris Naylor-Ballesteros’s beetle narrator and their red friend—and then had to go back to linger over the art and moments making up their story. A deceptively simple book with a huge emotional impact, its brief pages navigate friendship, courage, change, and the joy that finds you when you let it. This is one of those books you will read again and again, and it only gets better with age. —Jocelyn
