"That's what picking favorite songs is, really. You offer up your heart so that the song can latch onto you."

A great quote for #TuesdayTunes!

I loved this LGBTQIA+ YA romance. The title is based on the song "Friday I'm in Love" by The Cure. The book discusses sexual orientation, race, class, and music. An excellent read for music lovers during Pride Month!

TieDyeDude I saw you posted about this book a few days ago; I love its cover!

Great song, too. Such a light, uplifting pop song, which is something I don't always associate with The Cure 😅. Thanks for sharing.

I'm teaching this one in my summer Children's Lit class! Zoe intercepts a letter from her absent father on her 12th birthday and learns that he is claiming to be innocent of the murder he's been convicted of. This starts her quest to get him released, learning how systemic racism impacts the judicial system. Zoe and her father start a sweet correspondence to get to know each other, bonding over food and music.

The second grade class is learning fractions and Todd Wilkins is especially struggling… until he starts cheating— from copying to cheat sheets, Elizabeth quickly figures out what‘s going on. She gets so flustered that she starts making mistakes! When Mrs. Otis catches Todd red-handed, they all take turns tattling on another! The side plot of Jessica, Lila and Ellen‘s practical jokes adds to the fun— though Caroline and Andy may not agree!

A neurodivergent girl called Addie learns at school that her hometown burnt witches because they were deemed different. The witches were just like Addie - different. Addie works to start up a memorial to remember those who were punished.
Addie shows great power and strength unlike some of the adults in her life. It is a touching and powerful book. This book needs to be in every classroom and adults made to read it too!

In honor of Fathers' Day yesterday, let post books that feature dads. I'll start with this one about a girl and her dad traveling and grieving the loss of their family together. Has anyone read the recently released sequel yet?

All are welcome to play along!
