Believe the hype! This is too-notch modern, intersectional YA. So good! Haitian diaspora, lovable complex characters, relentlessly real story arc with a resolution I did not see coming, and a hook to the Black Lives Matter movement that I did not exp ...more

A House of My Own by Sandra Cisneros

Essays as a memoir--definitely not a memoir. Cisneros revisits and refines many many essays and speeches from her illustrious career; she illuminates many many facets of her life that I had not previously known about her. I love her commitment to all ...more

Bill Ayers
“Thousands, tens of thousands, and millions right now are mobilizing to stoke those fires from below, to develop a shared faith that injustice can be opposed and justice aspired to, that human solidarity and connectedness can become a living force, that a spirit of courage can be tempered with vast feelings of love and generosity, and that a full and passionate embrace of the lives we're given can be combined with an eagerness to move forward toward a worldwide beloved community.”
Bill Ayers, Demand the Impossible!: A Radical Manifesto

Matthew Quick
“Then we talked a lot about our parents and how we didn't want to become them, but we had no other role models--or "maps," Alex kept saying. "My father is a terrible map, mostly because he doesn't ever lead me anywhere." And I thought about my parents being maps that led to places I didn't want to go--and it made a shocking amount of sense, using the word maps to describe parents. It almost made you feel like you could fold Mom and Dad up and lock them away in the glove compartment of your car and just joyride for the rest of your life maybe.”
Matthew Quick, Every Exquisite Thing

Bill Ayers
“What do we hope to accomplish? What will help us realize our deepest dreams and desires? In what ways is education liberating, and in what ways can schooling be entangling and oppressive? Can learning be cast as a creative act, enjoyable and social, or is it always framed as competitive and brutal? What does it mean to be an educated person? What does it mean to be free? Awakened to fundamental and forbidden questions, a new world of possibilities heaves into view.”
Bill Ayers, Demand the Impossible!: A Radical Manifesto

Matthew Quick
“Do people actually do that--go back and thank their teachers years later, when they're no longer handicapped by youth and ignorance, when they figure out just how much their teachers actually did for them?”
Matthew Quick, Love May Fail

Neal Shusterman
“Sometimes there are moments when we objectively face the never, and it overwhelms us.”
Neal Shusterman, Challenger Deep
