Harley Milano has dreamed of being a trapeze artist for as long as she can remember. With parents who run a famous circus in Las Vegas, she spends almost every night in the big top watching their lead aerialist perform, wishing with all her soul that she could be up there herself one day.
After a huge fight with her parents, who continue to insist she go to school instead, Harley leaves home, betrays her family and joins the rival traveling circus Maison du Mystère. There, she is thrust into a world that is both brutal and beautiful, where she learns the value of hard work, passion and collaboration. But at the same time, Harley must come to terms with the truth of her family and her past—and reckon with the sacrifices she made and the people she hurt in order to follow her dreams.

on March 10, 2020
Genres: Young Adult, Non-Fiction
Pages: 320
Amazon
Goodreads

A timely, crucial, and empowering exploration of racism--and antiracism--in America
This is NOT a history book.This is a book about the here and now. A book to help us better understand why we are where we are.A book about race.
The construct of race has always been used to gain and keep power, to create dynamics that separate and silence. This remarkable reimagining of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi's National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning reveals the history of racist ideas in America, and inspires hope for an antiracist future. It takes you on a race journey from then to now, shows you why we feel how we feel, and why the poison of racism lingers. It also proves that while racist ideas have always been easy to fabricate and distribute, they can also be discredited.
Through a gripping, fast-paced, and energizing narrative written by beloved award-winner Jason Reynolds, this book shines a light on the many insidious forms of racist ideas--and on ways readers can identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their daily lives.

The Small Crimes of Tiffany Templeton

by Richard Fifield
Published by: Razorbill
on March 10, 2020
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary
Pages: 320
Amazon
Goodreads

The Serpent King meets Girl in Pieces in this moving and darkly funny story about a teenage girl coming of age and learning how to grieve in small-town Montana.
Tiffany Templeton is tough. She dresses exclusively in black, buys leather jackets that are several sizes too big, and never backs down from a fight. She's known in her tiny Montana town as Tough Tiff, and after her shoplifting arrest and a stint in a reform school, the nickname is here to stay.
But when she comes back home, Tiffany may not be the same old Tough Tiff that everybody remembers. Her life is different now: her mother keeps her on an even shorter leash than before, she meets with a probation officer once a month, and she's still grieving her father's recent death.
As Tiffany navigates her new life and learns who she wants to be, she must also contend with an overbearing best friend, the geriatric cast of a high-maintenance drama production, her first boyfriend, and a town full of eccentric neighbors--not to mention a dark secret she's been keeping about why the ex-football coach left town.
According to Kirkus, Fifield "succeeds in delivering a cast of quirky, unpredictable characters and and intriguing plot."
"From the very first page of this book, I immediately wanted to be friends with Tiffany Templeton: she's wry, she's funny, and she's one hell of a shoplifter. What surprised me most about her though--and what will surely keep me thinking about this book for a long time to come--is her enormous heart. Richard Fifield has given us a fresh take on a classic story of coming of age--one that's filled with heart, compassion, and a few small crimes. I'd follow him anywhere, and that includes Gabardine." --Grant Ginder, author of The People We Hate At The Wedding and Honestly, We Meant Well
"Richard Fifield is a true original. He uses equal doses of sass, insight, humor, and generosity of spirit to take you places you probably haven't been. In this case, a small Montana town with more big problems, secrets, and personalities than Times Square. Tiffany is the biggest personality of all, a bad girl on a mission to redeem herself--with or without the help of family, frenemies, and her probation officer. Despite a gift for comedy and creating lovable eccentrics, Fifield gives his story real depth and an immense amount of heart. It would be a crime to miss out on this joyously compassionate novel."--Stephen McCauley, author of My Ex-Life and The Object Of My Affection
