Shirley and Jamila are two girls with the same problem. They are destined for summer camps they don‘t want to go to. Jamila is the youngest of three children: a 20 year old brother, a 16 year old brother, and her. She loves to play basketball, but she can only play it on hoop in her driveway. Shirley is unusual. Sam called her weird and Shirley does not like that. What Shirley is, is observant. She notices things that others don‘t.

LibrarianRyan This is a gender bent Sherlock Holmes and Watson. Jamila is fun-loving and she wants to get to know people, and have friends. Shirley loves to read, finding things out, and solving mysteries. Shirley, being super smart hatches a plan to keep them out of summer camp. Instead she has found a way for Jamila to spend the summer on the basketball court and Shirley helping the neighbors solve mysteries and find lost things. This book was an absolute 3h
LibrarianRyan joy to read. The illustrations are appropriate, they‘re funny, and I think people will see themselves. I think kids will find this a lot of fun and while Shirley may not be a bumbling detective she‘s bumbling through life trying to make friends and not be seen as the weird child 3h

#OnThisDay in 1922 the first Newbery Medal was presented to Henrik Van Loon for his book The History of Mankind. Awarded annually for "the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children", it is yet another award named after an Englishman that only an American can win. In the 100 years of the award, only 6 authors have won the Medal more than once, and no one has won three. #HistoryGetsLIT
