Parvani's July Book Recommendations

Updated: Aug 9, 2020

Books, books, and more books! Though we only have three recommendations, I can assure you that they're the best!

This month's recommendations:

  • The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill

The people of the Protectorate leave a baby in the forest every year, to keep the witch in the forest contented. Little do they know, however, that the witch is a kindly old woman named Xan, who takes the unfortunate children to a new home. But what happens when Xan accidentally feeds a baby magic? This thought-provoking novel is a Newbery Medal winner, and offers a magical plot to delight and enchant any tween reader.

  • Track Series by Jason Reynolds

Jason Reynolds is the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. He has written many books, including the Track Series. It starts off with Ghost, about a boy called Ghost (real name Castle Cranshaw) who has a past that he is trying to escape. How does he get away from it? Running. But he's never been on a track team. Never. He joins, but there's always the fear of his past catching up to him. The series just continues from there, with Patty (Patina), who has many fears for her mother and of her mother, Sunny (Sunny), who thinks he's a murderer, and hates running, but does it for his dad who treats him terribly, and Lu (Lu), who needs to get over his ego, and help guide the team to victory. These books will amaze you with their vibrant characters and colorful stories. This series is definitely a good read.

  • The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl by Stacy McAnulty

Lucy Callahan was struck by lightning, and that gave her a superpower...ish. The shock of lightning gave Lucy incredible math abilities, and she has been homeschooled ever since. Lucy should technically go to college, but her grandma insists that she has to do one thing first: go to middle school for one year. She also has to read one book (that is not a math textbook), make one friend, and join one activity. But is Lucy up to the challenge?
