Shiver
by Maggie Stiefvater

Fly on the Wall: How One Girl Saw Everything
Fly on the Wall: How One Girl Saw Everything
by E Lockhart

With a wink and a nod to Kafka, Fly on the Wall is all about exactly what it sounds like — a girl struggling to understand those of the male persuasion one day gets her wish and wakes up as a fly. Marvel comics, nonconformists, and the mystery of... (read more)

Now One Foot, Now the Other
Now One Foot, Now the Other
by Tomie Depaola
Staff Pick
Now One Foot, Now the Other is an absolutely sweet grandfather-grandson friendship story, but it's also a great tool for teaching kids about strokes and preparing them for the changes they might see. In fact, I had a young friend once who experienced... (read more)

Nurtureshock: New Thinking about Children
Nurtureshock: New Thinking about Children
by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman
Staff Pick

Riding Invisible
Riding Invisible
by Sandra Alonzo

Riding Invisible was so not what I expected it to be, in the best way. The basic premise: A guy runs away from home on his horse and keeps a journal of his "adventure." What I slowly discovered is that this guy is not having an adventure at all; rather... (read more)

Sex for Guys (Groundwork Guides)
Sex for Guys (Groundwork Guides)
by Manne Forssberg
Staff Pick
Finally, sex ed that you don't have to wait for college to get. My favorite things about this book? The absence of the word "abstinence," the lack of goofy illustrations, and the most unabashed discussion of the minutiae of sex: from the first kiss (how... (read more)

All Kinds of Families!
All Kinds of Families!
by Mary Ann Hoberman
Staff Pick
If there was ever a book that I wanted everyone in the whole wide world to read, this would be it. With its retro '70s illustrations and Japanese cuteness, I could look at the pictures for hours. And there's so much to look at, I'm usually just... (read more)

The Sky Is Everywhere
The Sky Is Everywhere
by Jandy Nelson
Staff Pick
The Sky Is Everywhere is pretty intense — dealing with grief and a crazy first love — but it's full of real characters (meaning not that there are, like, real people in it, but that the characters are really wacky and unique) and it's honest, well... (read more)

Liar
Liar
by Justine Larbalestier

1. This book is fantastic. 2. It is told by Micah, a compulsive liar 3. It's kind of a love story, kind of a murder mystery, but it mostly defies categories. 4. I was never sure I could believe what she was telling me 5. I couldn’t stop reading it.... (read more)
