MIDDLE GRADE BOOKS I NEED TO READ!!
Teen & Young Adult Social Issues
In this turbulent world, it can be lovely to use books as an escape, to read about a different world with different problems, and maybe forget about your own for a while. These books can make you laugh. And above all, they make you think, help you process, and ultimately, maybe, can help you move on. The year since a mass shooting shook their Queens neighborhood has played out differently for Jess and Lucas, both of whom were affected by that night in eerily similar and deeply personal ways. As Jess struggles to take care of her depressed mother and Lucas takes up boxing under the ever-watchful eye of his overprotective parents, their paths converge.
