Kathi Appelt recommends
The Hunt for the Hollower (2023)
Callie C Miller
"This is a tale, not only of magic, but of what is possible, of the ability to change and grow, of the realization of one's own powers. This is storytelling at its utter best."
Freewater (2022)
Amina Luqman-Dawson
"In Freewater, Amina Luqman Dawson shines a bright light on a little-known piece of history. Set against a forbidding landscape, the bright promise of freedom is illuminated in all its myriad shapes and forms. And it couldn't be more timely. Solidly researched and beautifully written, this is storytelling at its finest. Dawson's voice and the voices of her cast will linger long after the last page is closed."
Sunshine (2021)
Marion Dane Bauer
"Master storyteller Marion Dane Bauer gives us this luminous story of a boy and his mother and the dog that connects them. It’s about the islands we each carry in our hearts. It’s about forgiveness. It’s about the redeeming power of love, both real and imagined."
