SUMMER READING RECOMMENDATIONS
by Elisabeth Thomas

Submitted by Amanda D.
A Gothic story about an alternative college set in the late 90’s. Possibly for fans of Stephen King’s The Institute - but it’s not as dark and I wish it had been creepier. 

I think the main character didn’t draw me in enough...but overall the story kept me reading until the end.
by Glennon Doyle

Submitted by Kelly K.
An inspirational memoir. Doyle reminds us to stay true to ourselves, be strong in what our hearts tell us is right, and navigate life with full-on hope. 
Brave! Revealing! Empowering! 
The message is to let go of all judgment except what is best for your own truth, then go for it. Don’t be afraid to challenge, confront, and stand up for what living your best life has to offer.

Learn how to finally learn new habits and break bad ones. This book provides an easy template to learn the simple steps of Behavior Design. Start small, anchor to an existing routine or event, and celebrate. I have already transformed my sleep routine. The author gives loads of examples and suggestions to help you on your way. 
YOUNG ADULT FICTION
by Justina Ireland

Submitted by Emily D.
What happens when the Civil War is derailed due to a zombie outbreak? The North and South are forced to put their philosophical issues aside to combine as one force to defeat an even bigger evil. However, maybe not even the restless dead can help society get on the same side of what is fair and equitable.

AGES BIRTH - PRESCHOOL

Colorful, adorable drawings illustrate this tale of how Sun and Clouds stopped being friends. How will there ever be rainbows again? See how the crayons come to help and how everyone learns that “It’s better being friends!”
GRADES K-2
by Kwame Alexander

Submitted by Katie B.
This is the 2020 Caldecott winner.
The illustrations are vivid and strong, and the book emphasizes famous African American heroes throughout time.
GRADES 3-5
by Matt Phelan

Submitted by Kelly M.
If you liked The Wild Robot try Knights VS Monsters. A hilarious adventure that will hook that reluctant reader.
Follow the warriors as they battle vampires, sea monsters, and even ogres. Great illustrations, a nod to graphic novel lovers, and a hero for everyone makes this one not to miss!
GRADES 6-8
by Lucy Strange

Submitted by Kim S.
This title was getting no love so I checked it out since it was the children's version of my beloved dark and twisty mystery genre. I do not know why this one was languishing on the shelves, it was great! Read by the author and extremely well done it is filled with a fairy-tale-like witch in the woods and kind strangers who are not what they appear, Absent parents and a mystery to be solved.
