#VickPicks: October 2020

Time for some book love once again! Here are my PB/MG/YA/adult #VickPicks for October!


PB: “A gentle tale of inclusion and fairness that children will clearly understand.” (with 4 starred reviews!): TOGETHER WE GROW by Susan Vaught and Kelly Murphy.


MG: Gorgeous writing, a captivating story, and again, four starred reviews! This book had me hooked from page 1: ECHO MOUNTAIN by Lauren Wolk.


YA: “With evocative, rhythmic prose and realistically rendered relationships and tensions, Acevedo’s unvarnished depiction of young adulthood is at once universal and intensely specific.” WITH THE FIRE ON HIGH by Elizabeth Acevedo. (I just realized this one also has four starred reviews. I’m sensing a theme…)


Adult: “Traversing topics of love, race, and class, this emotionally complex novel speaks to―and may reverberate beyond―our troubled times.” A GOOD NEIGHBORHOOD by Therese Anne Fowler.
