Girlhood: Teens Around The World In Their Own Voices

What does a teenage girl dream about in Nigeria or New York? How does she spend her days in Mongolia, the Midwest, and the Middle East?

All around the world, girls are going to school, working, dreaming up big futures—they are soccer players and surfers, ballerinas and chess champions. Yet we know so little about their daily lives. We often hear about challenges and catastrophes in the news, and about exceptional girls who make headlines. But even though the health, education, and success of girls so often determines the future of a community, we don’t know more about what life is like for the ordinary girls, the ones living outside the headlines.

From the Americas to Europe to Africa to Asia to the South Pacific, the thirty teens from twenty-seven countries in Girlhood share their own stories of growing up through diary entries and photographs, and the girls’ stories are put in context with reporting and research that helps us understand the circumstances and communities they live in. This full-color, exuberantly designed volume is a portrait of ordinary girlhood around the world, and of the world, as seen through girls’ eyes.

Girlhood: Teens Around The World
Edited by Masuma Ahuja

“Full of pictures and the unique voices of teenage girls in a variety of situations and cultures, this book provides a snapshot of teens’ lives around the world.”
School Library Journal

“These girls’ heartfelt, hopeful, and inspiring narratives will resonate with teenage girls everywhere.”
Booklist

“An inviting and appealing collection.”

February Middle-Grade Book Covers To Hang On Your Wall

Don’t lie and say you don’t judge a book by its cover. WE. LOVE. COVER. ART. And there are plenty of books on my shelf that I have no intention of reading but they sure do look pretty. So here are some for yours! Plus, a printable!

Red, White, and Whole – Rajani Larocca

A heartbreakingly hopeful #ownvoices novel in verse about an Indian American girl whose life is turned upside down when her mother is diagnosed with leukemia.

Reha feels torn between two worlds: school, where she’s the only Indian American student, and home, with her family’s traditions and holidays. But Reha’s parents don’t understand why she’s conflicted—they only notice when Reha doesn’t meet their strict expectations. Reha feels disconnected from her mother, or Amma, although their names are linked—Reha means “star” and Punam means “moon”—but they are a universe apart.

Then Reha finds out that her Amma is sick. Really sick.

Reha, who dreams of becoming a doctor even though she can’t stomach the sight of blood, is determined to make her Amma well again. She’ll be the perfect daughter, if it means saving her Amma’s life.

From Indies Introduce author Rajani LaRocca comes a radiant story about the ties that bind and how to go on in the face of unthinkable loss. This is the perfect next read for fans of Jasmine Warga and Thanhhà Lại.

The Mysterious Disappearance of Aidan S – Davis Levithan

New York Times bestselling author David Levithan takes young readers on twisting journey through truth, reality, and fantasy and belief.

Aidan disappeared for six days. Six agonizing days of searches and police and questions and constant vigils. Then, just as suddenly as he vanished, Aidan reappears. Where has he been? The story he tells is simply. . . impossible. But it’s the story Aidan is sticking to.

His brother, Lucas, wants to believe him. But Lucas is aware of what other people, including their parents, are saying: that Aidan is making it all up to disguise the fact that he ran away.

When the kids in school hear Aidan’s story, they taunt him. But still, Aidan clings to his story. And as he becomes more of an outcast, Lucas becomes more and more concerned. Being on Aidan’s side would mean believing in the impossible. But how can you believe in the impossible when everything and everybody is telling you not to?

One Jar of Magic – Corey Ann Haydu

From the critically acclaimed author of Eventown comes a hopeful and empowering tale set in an enchanting world of magic and mysterious family secrets—perfect for fans of Anne Ursu, Rebecca Stead, and Wendy Mass.

Magic is like a dream. Delightful. Terrifying. Unreal.

Rose Alice Anders is Little Luck. Lucky to be born into the Anders family. Lucky to be just as special and magical as the most revered man in town—her father. The whole town has been waiting for Rose to turn twelve, when she can join them in their annual capturing of magic on New Year’s Day and become the person she was born to be.

But when that special day finally comes, Rose barely captures one tiny jar of magic. Now Rose’s dad won’t talk to her anymore and her friendships have gotten all twisted and wrong. So when Rose hears whispers that there are people who aren’t meant for magic at all, she begins to wonder if that’s who she belongs with.

Maybe if she’s away from all the magic, away from her dad telling her who she’s meant to be, who she has to be, Rose can begin to piece together what’s truly real in a world full of magic.

The Last Bear – Hannah Gold

An instant classic with a bear-sized heart, Hannah Gold’s debut novel is a touching story of kindness, adventure, and forging your own path—perfect for fans of Pax and A Wolf Called Wander.

There are no polar bears left on Bear Island. At least, that’s what April’s father tells her when his scientific research takes them to a faraway Arctic outpost.

But one night, April catches a glimpse of something distinctly bear shaped loping across the horizon. A polar bear who shouldn’t be there—who is hungry, lonely and a long way from home.

An excellent choice for readers in grades 3 to 7, this fierce celebration of friendship includes full-page black-and-white illustrations throughout, as well as information about the real Bear Island and the plight of the polar bears.

Ancestors Approved – Cynthia Leitich Smith

Edited by award-winning and bestselling author Cynthia Leitich Smith, this collection of intersecting stories by both new and veteran Native writers bursts with hope, joy, resilience, the strength of community, and Native pride.

Native families from Nations across the continent gather at the Dance for Mother Earth Powwow in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

In a high school gym full of color and song, people dance, sell beadwork and books, and celebrate friendship and heritage. Young protagonists will meet relatives from faraway, mysterious strangers, and sometimes one another (plus one scrappy rez dog).

They are the heroes of their own stories.

Sky Beyond The Storm

Prepare for the jaw-dropping finale of Sabaa Tahir’s beloved New York Times bestselling An Ember in the Ashes fantasy series, and discover: Who will survive the storm? Picking up just a few months after A Reaper at the Gates left off…The long-imprisoned jinn are on the attack, wreaking bloody havoc in villages and cities alike. But for the Nightbringer, vengeance on his human foes is just the beginning.

By his side, Commandant Keris Veturia declares herself Empress, and calls for the heads of any and all who defy her rule. At the top of the list? The Blood Shrike and her remaining family.Laia of Serra, now allied with the Blood Shrike, struggles to recover from the loss of the two people most important to her. Determined to stop the approaching apocalypse, she throws herself into the destruction of the Nightbringer. In the process, she awakens an ancient power that could lead her to victory–or to an unimaginable doom.

And deep in the Waiting Place, the Soul Catcher seeks only to forget the life–and love–he left behind. Yet doing so means ignoring the trail of murder left by the Nightbringer and his jinn. To uphold his oath and protect the human world from the supernatural, the Soul Catcher must look beyond the borders of his own land. He must take on a mission that could save–or destroy–all that he knows.

Sky Beyond The Storm

I own three different copies of every book in this series. I have a physical copy for my bookshelves, I have an e-copy for reading, and an audiobook for listening. It has been a long time since I have loved a series from page one to the end and I still can’t believe the wild ride this one has been.

To try and avoid one long primal scream, let’s pick some highlights from the series:

  • When Elias saved Laia from the Commandant.
  • When Helene healed Elias by singing.
  • When Elias almost killed Helene but she was lucky enough to be wearing special armor.
  • When Helene had to hunt Elias down but was slowly growing attached to Harper.
  • When the Commandant poisoned Elias
  • When Laia first turn invisible
  • When Izzie dies
  • When Keenan turns out to be the Nightbringer
  • Everything about the Nightbringer
  • When Elias becomes the Soul Catcher
  • When Marcus goes completely insane
  • When the ghosts escape and attacked the tribal caravans
  • When we learned what the Scholars did to the Jinn
  • When we learned that Cook was actually Laia’s mother
  • When Helene takes off her mask and gives it to the Nightbringer
  • When Elias meets his grandmother’s ghost
  • When we learned that the Augurs were actually among the Scholars who tricked the jinn 1,000 years ago

And that’s just the first three books. So let’s talk about Sky Beyond the Storm now.

But first.

Deep breath in.

And scream.

As always, Sabaa Tahir’s prose is unfathomably beautiful and full of new and wonderful words. As a writer myself, Tahir’s work has been, and continues to be, a reminder not to look down on my audience.

Throughout the series her characters have emoted on the page like actors in a movie. Her writing is so clear that I have clear memories in my head of these emotional scenes. I have never felt like I have read her work, more like I experienced it.

And Sky Beyond The Storm is no different.

I spent a long time coming out of my depressive funk by reading through Part 1, which makes up roughly 50% of the book. If anything, I will say that Helene’s sections, although action packed, really slowed the pacing of the book as a whole. And yet, I still don’t feel like I should take a star for it. Even the slowest sections of A Skey Beyond The Storm had meaningful moments (*AHEM* AVITAS HARPER *AHEM*).

Sabaa Tahir has an amazing talent for plot reveals and I cannot discuss it further without ruining multiple books for you (as I may have already with my list at the start of this review).

As the series is over now, I urge you all to get the audiobooks, buy your hardbacks or paperbacks (whichever you prefer), and sit down to enjoy the ride.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Lobizona

Some people ARE illegal.

Lobizonas do NOT exist.

Both of these statements are false.

Manuela Azul has been crammed into an existence that feels too small for her. As an undocumented immigrant who’s on the run from her father’s Argentine crime-family, Manu is confined to a small apartment and a small life in Miami, Florida.

Until Manu’s protective bubble is shattered.

Her surrogate grandmother is attacked, lifelong lies are exposed, and her mother is arrested by ICE. Without a home, without answers, and finally without shackles, Manu investigates the only clue she has about her past–a mysterious “Z” emblem—which leads her to a secret world buried within our own. A world connected to her dead father and his criminal past. A world straight out of Argentine folklore, where the seventh consecutive daughter is born a bruja and the seventh consecutive son is a lobizón, a werewolf. A world where her unusual eyes allow her to belong.

As Manu uncovers her own story and traces her real heritage all the way back to a cursed city in Argentina, she learns it’s not just her U.S. residency that’s illegal. . . .it’s her entire existence.

LIBRO.FM

Lobizona was the book that broke my pandemic reading block. Because Lobizona was one of the best books I read in 2020.

It’s got beautiful prose and a tight pacing, tension in all the right places, and I felt so connected to Manu immediately that I didn’t want to put the book down.

Lobizona has it all. A beautiful, diverse cast, magic and romance, werewolves and witches, crushing gendered stereotypes! It’s the YA werewolf version of The Witch Boy. It’s been months since I’ve read the book (don’t blame me, blame pandemic brain) and I’m still gushing about how great it was. It’s one of those I need to reread constantly. It’s got a magic school far better than Hogwarts and a stellar world.

The second I finished it, I yelled into the Twitter void about it and my need for book 2 that the author, Romina Garber, provided links to it’s sequel, Cazadora! It releases August 2021, so you better get your paws on Lobizona ASAP.

My Year In Books

2020 felt longer than it actually was. I’m both surprised and unphased by my Goodreads statistics. I only read 23 books. But I also finished writing one, so I guess that evens out. I felt the pressure to read as the pandemic grew and lockdown occurred. But about two months in, inside my house, I found that reading wasn’t joyous anymore.

I wish for this year to be different.

I hope everyone stays safe and healthy, but also that no book nerd burns out. We’ll be seeing all sorts of reading challenges and pledges this month and I just want everyone to remember that even if all you do is buy a book because it looks pretty, or read one chapter and put it down, that’s okay.

Of Silver and Shadow

Ren Kolins is a silver wielder—a dangerous thing to be in the kingdom of Erdis, where magic has been outlawed for a century. Ren is just trying to survive, sticking to a life of petty thievery, card games, and pit fighting to get by. But when a wealthy rebel leader discovers her secret, he offers her a fortune to join his revolution. The caveat: she won’t see a single coin until they overthrow the King.

Behind the castle walls, a brutal group of warriors known as the King’s Children is engaged in a competition: the first to find the rebel leader will be made King’s Fang, the right hand of the King of Erdis. And Adley Farre is hunting down the rebels one by one, torturing her way to Ren and the rebel leader, and the coveted King’s Fang title.

But time is running out for all of them, including the youngest Prince of Erdis, who finds himself pulled into the rebellion. Political tensions have reached a boiling point, and Ren and the rebels must take the throne before war breaks out.

Of Silver and Shadow, Jennifer Gruenke
February 16th, 2021
Goodreads
LIBRO.FM

The concept behind Of Silver and Shadow was so intriguing! I love weird magic concepts, and who can turn away from a royal competition?

But maybe it was the pandemic, maybe it was me, but I just couldn’t get into this one.

I kept finding myself rereading paragraphs constantly. I couldn’t get past chapter one, even though the prose was good. It had to be pandemic brain that kept me from truly enjoying this book.

The cover is beautiful, and I LOVE the trend of having the title look like the thing it describes–the “Of Silver” looks like its made of silver and the “and Shadow” looks like shadows. It’s so pretty.

I recommend this one on concept alone; I find it unfair for me to rate this one due to the situation. I wasn’t able to read a single book between March and November.

Originally slated for a May 2020 release, Of Silver and Shadow releases February 16, 2021. Maybe I’ll give this one a second chance this year when the physical copy hits shelves.
