My homeschool book club met today to discuss this fantastic story of two cousins, Otto and Sheed, who are so bummed about school starting tomorrow that they accidentally freeze time 😬 It‘s a goofy fantasy with Phantom Tollbooth vibes but also deep thoughts about the passage of time. The kids had an in-depth discussion of what they would do if they could time travel (stop WWII, apparently) and programmed Sphero robots for a robot dance party! 🤖

Heard a lot of good things about this book and it‘s brand new to the Clift Library! Can‘t wait to recommend it to my students 💙#WeNeedDiverseBooks #BlackLivesMatter

I binged this entire series on audiobook and hate that the 4th book isn‘t available yet! 😩 #pocauthor #weneeddiversebooks #ownvoices

MicheleinPhilly I‘ve read the first and REALLY liked it. Think I need to re-read before continuing because it‘s been so long. 3w
MidnightBookGirl I loved the first book and I have the newer ones, I really need to do a binge read soon! 3w
Chelleo @MidnightBookGirl @MicheleinPhilly I forgot I placed a hold on it and once I started listening I immediately put holds on the others. 3w

This is an excellent book. Brings a much needed balance to this contemporary tween experience genre novel for 11 - 14 year old readers. #positiverepresentation #ownvoices #family #identity #weneeddiversebooks #reneewatson I believe this is the 🇦🇺 / international cover. #digitalarc

When the book's author likes your review 😳😯🤯😬🤔😄🤓😁😃🥳

All the emojis!

Your girl does not claim to be a professional reviewer nor very good about putting thoughts and emotions about a reading experience into something logical... or something that'll encourage someone else to pick up this book... but I strive to be genuine and this poetry collection will always have a little spot in my border kid heart.

Hooked_on_books How cool that he liked your review! I actually had an author “like” my review on goodreads when I hated the book. Yikes! 😳 2mo

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

For me, this was an exceptional book. I saw myself and my husband... my very own Güero... in many of its poems. I saw my familia (family) and our traditions and our costumbres (customs) and even the dichos (traditional sayings) my Mom is so fond of imparting on us. I saw fragments of my hometown in México and the border city in Texas that embraced us when we first moved to the United States.

(Continued in comments below ⬇️)

Librariana I saw a protagonist straddling and balancing two cultures and I understood. I saw memories reflected back to me... and boy, did this make my heart smile. 2mo
Paperback.Propensity Wow I have to read this 2mo

Nonfiction isn‘t typically my thing, but I enjoyed this. It was recommended to me by my colleagues who recently added it to their World Literature course. I can definitely understand why they chose it and why it has been resonating with students. Noah‘s voice is sincere and engaging. #nonfiction #teachersoflitsy #representationmatters #weneeddiversebooks
