Lily and Dunkin | Donna Gephart
post image

When a book makes ypu tear up in your car on the way to work, you know it is a good one. This book felt like a squeeze to the heart and a big hug all in one. It was sweet, diverse, sad at times, and fun at times. Lily and Dunkin felt, to me, like great representations of a transcender child and a child with mental illness in the form of bipolar disorder.

When Dunkin sees a #beautifulstranger in the form of a blond girl, in a red dress, with eyes as blue as forest lakes, he becomes instantly interested in learning more about her. But the next time he meets the girl, she is wearing boy‘s clothes and says her name is Tim. Which is the name Lily was given at birth, but not the name of her real self.

And so begins the story of Lily and Dunkin, which is shaping up to be just wonderful ❤️


JennyM This sounds a great read! 1mo

Picked this book off #MountTBR for the #DiverseMiddleGrade category of #Booked2019. It‘s a quick story about three sister and their month spent in Oakland with their unlikable mother and the Black Panthers (even though they really just wanted to go to Disneyland).

Book 2 of #24b4Monday ✔️
Time: 10h28m

I‘m not the intended audience for this one but it managed to fulfill both the #DiverseMiddleGrade prompt for #Booked2019 AND #Malawi for the #ReadAroundTheWorldChallenge- plus it was available through #KindleUnlimited! I liked the details of daily life in Malawi, there wasn‘t enough there to overcome the more problematic parts of the plot. I expected the heavy-handed Sunday school lessons, but everything with the father made me uncomfortable

Cinfhen Sorry it wasn‘t a total pick but at least you got a #doubledip 2mo
TorieStorieS @Cinfhen indeed!! 😁 2mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Good job, even if was just so-so. ♥️📚👊🏻 2mo

Middle-grade about a bright young girl in Pakistan who is attempting to get an education and go to college but due to unpaid debts her life veers off course and she must figure out a way to overcome these circumstances. Good introduction to the obstacles many around the world and particularly girls face in obtaining even a basic education. #booked2019 #diversemiddlegrade
