I liked the character dynamics, and I think teens particularly will appreciate the nuanced approach to gender and sexuality--there's explicitly bi witches, there's married lesbian witches, there's a trans witch, etc, and I loved that!

However the witc

Refugee by Alan Gratz

This is another book that hooked me as I was skimming it to write a booktalk for it. The shifting narration is really compelling, and I really appreciate the way so explicitly Gratz connects Cuban and Syrian refugees to Jewish refugees in WWII--refug ...more

This is a moving story of family, culture, and what people will do to and for one another. It's a compelling mystery--I meant to just skim this enough to write a booktalk about it (it's one of the assigned summer reading books) but I got sucked in an ...more

I LOVED this book and so wish that it had existed when I was an awkward, fat teen! There's such a great range of essays, poems, and art (in the digital ARC I had some of the art was still TK but what's in here is already great). I love how intersecti ...more

Overall, I enjoyed this a lot! I'm a sucker for any kind of urban magic-school-type story. I liked the outsider view of this--Ivy is a non-magical PI whose sister got all the magic abilities. I also appreciated how effortlessly diverse this book was, ...more

“What are you watching? Is it comforting? I don’t have the bandwidth to give a fuck about anything not comforting to me most of the time. I know that’s “uncultured,” but also I don’t care because who are you, person challenging me? I want to watch Veep before bed because it makes me laugh, and I want to watch true crime documentaries, and I want to watch British actors in terrific costumes battling through emotions they weren’t even aware they had. That’s all. I’m tired. Find your comforting shit. Build your mental fort and hang out there.”
Anne T. Donahue, Nobody Cares

“I believe feminism is grounded in supporting the choices of women even if we wouldn’t make certain choices for ourselves.”

“When feminism falls short of our expectations, we decide the problem is with feminism rather than with the flawed people who act in the name of the movement.”
