Joseph Kertes recommends

The Boat Runner (2017)
Devin Murphy
"Poignant… acts as a cautionary tale for our own times… The young Dutch boy Jacob Koopman, together with his family, lives in the middle of a morality tale, in which doing the right thing is often obscured by the need to survive. Devin Murphy has given us a moving, powerful and important work."

The Book of Sam (2020)
Rob Shapiro
"Rob Shapiro gives us a rich, fresh, honest, eloquent take on the age-old adventure archetype and makes us feel better for the experience, better about ourselves, better about the world. What an achievement that is. This is a brilliant YA debut."
