For the Politics box of the nonfiction challenge I chose Mayor Pete's book. I've always liked him but this book cemented it, he's good people. It is probably a pipe dream to believe that America would actually be progressive enough to elect a young gay Democrat for President but I think he would bring a lot to the table. He definitely turned South Bend around. I love his creative use of tech/programs.

Amiable I love Mayor Pete! 6d

MidnightBookGirl You are braver than I am! I am avoiding leaving my house until this evening! 1w
ljuliel @MidnightBookGirl I only made a couple quick stops at small stores and probably after the early stampede. It wasn‘t bad. Back home and done for today. 📖 1w

ljuliel Misty, you might want to read her other one first. It‘s a memoir about a girl growing up in Indiana. It sounds boring, but she‘s very funny. ( not the raunchy funny, just funny ). Part 2 will make more sense if you read 1w

#bookhaul from the weekend! I wish I'd found Witch in October but I'm excited I found it in the wild! Also very curious about the Cannibals of Indiana pamphlet. 😉

I‘m mad Kekla Magoon isn‘t Jason Reynolds famous. “The Summer of Styx Malone” is beautiful and funny and heartbreaking. Sullivan Jones kills it as the narrator. Highly recommend this lovely middle grade book!

I think this book would be good for older kids. Younger kids would not be able to read this book. The themes in this book are more mature such as, homelessness during the Great Depression and racism.

The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis, 2012. Deza is the smartest girl in her class, she has been told there is a special path for her in life. The Great Depression has hit and her father lost his job and had to move away. Deza really earns her name Mighty Miss Malone. She had to go through a lot.

I enjoyed how the book not only had historical content to it but still holds a lot of relevance to this current day in age.
