Mehso-so

Author: E.E. Charlton- Trujillo
Published: March 2013
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Awards: Stonewall Book Award
High school freshman Angie sees herself the way everyone else does, as “Fat Angie,” until KC Romance, “a model kind of beauty beneath the bad-girl garb,” breezes into her small, conservative Ohio town. Angie is relentlessly bullied at school, as well as belittled by her mother and adopted younger brother.

I got these two books from the library on Thursday. The library will be closed for almost 2 months as they're moving to a new building. I usually only get books for the kids as my library doesn't have that huge of an English books section. But the Matt Haig book caught my eye. And the cover of that German fantasy book looked stunning so I brought it too.
I think I'll start with the Matt Haig book first

I absolutely loved Me and My Fear written and illustrated by Francesca Sanna. It really showed just how big and unstoppable fear can get and feel. Many children have fears that to us seem small but for them can feel overwhelming. This is an amazing book to talk about different emotions and how no one is truly alone in what they are feeling.

Me and My Fear | Francesca Sanna

The illustrations within Me and My Fear are so amazing. The illustrator uses the size of white ghost looking creature to portray the size of the girls fear. As she becomes more afraid her fear becomes larger in size and prevents her from doing anything. By the end the illustrations show that everyone has a little fear they bring with them.

Midnight Library | Matt Haig

A highly original take on what it's like to have depression, but more importantly how to move forward in a positive direction. Matt Haig has been open about his own experiences living with depression and anxiety and in doing so he validates the very real pain and suffering of the disease. Can't recommend this book enough.

If it has Alexis Hall on it, I'm going to read it (eventually!) So ofc i was excited when I got this! Tbh it's not as good as some of his other books, but I think that in every book he talks Abt something v important. Here it's #mentalhealth and getting help, and lack of sex in relationships. I really enjoy that this convo came up bc nobody really talks Abt this (and how messy things can get when there's not good communication)

CarolynM Completely agree. He‘s brilliant. 2d
