Best E (easy reader) and J (Juvenile) Books:
Otto the Book Bear by Katie Cleminson. Otto, the bear that lives in a book, gets left behind when the book's owners more. A very touching bear adventure develops and the library becomes a hero. A book to love.
It's All About Me-ow by Hudson Talbott. A silly story and illustrations about cat life.
The Lions of Little Rock by Kirstin Levine. Set in 1958 in Little Rock, AR, this story explores the friendship between two girls of different races and what they teach each other.
Best YA (young adult) Books:
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. An amazing written book that will have you both laughing and crying. The book is about teens who have cancer, admittedly a heavy subject, but the characters are so real and the writing so honest you will love it.
