Of course I flaked and didn’t post this yesterday, but better late than never!
What books have I drooled over this week? It’s Feburary, which means it’s Black History Month, so all of the books will feature African American authors and/or characters.
A true story, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba and Brian Mealer, looks simply amazing. Again, let me just post a video:

And lastly, even though this post has been full to the brim of YA, I can’t resist one last one: A Wish After Midnight by Zetta Elliot. It’s a time-travel tale, but as always it’s the recommendations from others that the characters are developed and their relationships nuanced that really makes me want to read this.
