My first On Sale Now feature this year was nice and full. Since then its been very small. Charlotte's listing of New Releases of science fiction and fantasy is always full. I would like to continue to simply mention the new releases which feature kids of color weekly but there simply aren't enough. So I am turning this into a once a month feature.
Prince of Fenway Park by Julianna Baggott (paperback) I loved this book. An middle grade baseball book with a Curt Flood reference, how could I not. Baggot was one of nine authors was kind enough to participate in a baseball feature I did last year.
How Lamar's Bad Prank Won a Budda Sized Trophy by Crystal Allen - Its nice to see another middle grade contemporary novel that features a male protagonist of color. my review.
