David Yoon, the husband of Nicola Yoon (Everything Everything), just penned his first novel and it’s awesome! Frank Li, a senior in high school, and his friends embrace their nerdiness as they struggle with life…first loves, racism, identity, and parents. Frankly in Love is smart, funny, and realistic. Listen to David Yoon’s NPR interview and then check out his book!
The Poet X was a highly acclaimed debut so I was nervous when Elizabeth Acevedo’s novel, With the Fire on High, came out in May. Happily, this book did not disappoint. The writing, plot, and characters are all amazing. Emoni is a teen mom in her senior year of high school. She’s passionate about cooking yet can’t fathom how it’ll fit it in to her future. Emoni is a strong but vulnerable young woman who juggles responsibilities, love, and dreams. I was cheering her on all the way. Highly recommended! -Kim Larsen, YA Librarian
