    Loads of recommendations, thin on excerpts

    Many thanks to NetGalley and Publishers Lunch for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. My opinions are 100% my own and independent of receiving an advance copy. Another great selection of Young Adult books coming out this fall. It truly is amazing to see the diversity, variety and inclusivity of this genre. Kobe Bryant is releasing another in his series of books that focus on young athletes and the challenges they face. This time it will be a young black girl who faces “The Queen” in a tennis match. There seemed to be a focus on young people overcoming odds. “I’m Not Dying With You Tonight” by Golly Segal and Kimberly Jones puts two young teens surviving a night on the streets after a violent outbreak. “Home Girl” by Alex Wheatle main character is a girl stuck in the foster system. “Scars Like Wings” by Erin Stewart is about a teen adjusting to life after a terrible accident that took her family and left her with scars on the inside and out. “Coral” by Sara Ella is a modern take on a Hans Christian Anderson tale that explores mental health issues. As an educator, I really like stories that focus on youth struggling and overcoming the odds. Everything in life is so big when you are a teen and, if done well, they relate to these stories where they can see themselves. The selection of excerpts did seem to be a bit small compared to other Buzz Books but I always appreciate someone doing the work for me and culling down the huge list of releases down to a few pages of what to watch out for.
