bookshelves: arc, debut

I used to have this huge assumption that a middle-grade story will be too childish for me, now that I'm in my twenties. I'm glad to say that I've been proven wrong after I read Hurricane Season.

Melleby's debut is an innocent coming of age journey, following the story of Fig and her attempt to looks normal in the eyes of her friends while also taking care of his pianist father who suffered from bipolar disorder. It explores art, coming out, finding your voice, and speaking the truth no matter how hard it seems to be. I've never thought that I'd learned so many things from a sixth-grader.

I'm definitely eyeing Melleby's next book and I'm on my way to check out more books in this genre!

Thank you Algonquin Young Readers and NetGalley for providing me with an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review.
