The First Rule of Punk

The First Rule of Punk | Little Lit Book Series

@writesinla shares a diverse middle grade book:

Had the pleasure of reading an advanced copy of The First Rule of Punk by Celia C. Pérez. Malú is totally captivating as she navigates being Mexican American, being punk, two cultures and parents and places as she discovers her "own patchwork quilt," unique self. Plus, there are zines woven throughout!! Pick this up August 22nd. It's a truly fantastic book for middle grade readers (and anyone).

Published by Viking Books for Young Readers.

Pool

Pool | Little Lit Book Series

@writesinla shares one more #littlelitbookseries pick for books that transport.

POOL by JiHyeon Lee is whimsical and dynamic yet at the same time completely still. In this wordless story, there's a crowded pool full of floats and people. Two swimmers dive below the bustle and find a magical world only they share. Makes for a stunning and imaginative dive into summer reading.  Published by Chronicle Books.

Garcia and Colette Go Exploring

Garcia and Colette Go Exploring | Little Lit Book Series

This month is all about books that take you places.  @writesinla shares a new release!

Two friends have a disagreement about where to go. It leads to separate, parallel adventures accompanied by peanut butter sandwiches. But it turns out solo adventures can be lonely. This book is delightfully illustrated and the side by side stories are as satisfying as that sweet, inevitable ending.

Garcia and Colette Go Exploring was written by Hannah Barnaby, illustrated by Andrew Joyner and published by G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers.
