This week, we celebrated Transgender Awareness Week, and today, we honor Transgender Day Of Remembrance in memory of the trans lives lost in the past year due to anti-transgender violence. Though all of the books (and movies) shared this week deserve your attention, these are MC's favorites ranging from contemporary to fantasy to non-fiction. If you haven't yet, check out the Overdrive curation here, which MC also contributed to: https://bit.ly/30wezo5

Thinking about reading "Far from the Tree" by Robin Benway? Check out this book review from superstar teen volunteer Sarah S. - "Robin Benway truly captures the essence of what it means to be family with this heart-warming coming of age story. Sixteen year old Grace is finally compelled to search for her birth mother after a sudden turn of events turns her life upside down. Instead, she discovers two siblings that she never knew existed. The three of them each are trying desperately to find where they belong in their own little world, and they find a comfort and understanding in each other that makes everything feel ok even if it isn’t. Prepare for an emotional roller coaster because Benway is an expert at creating characters so raw and human that you cannot help but feel elation for their successes and complete heartbreak for their struggles."
