  • All the primary characters shine in this impressive debut.

  • Allen, who herself has Turner's syndrome, gracefully tackles heavy topics in her debut novel, including bullying and premature babies. Readers will empathize with spunky Libby's social stumbles and will root for her as she dares to dream big. A tender novel about love, loyalty, and finding yourself, this will win a place in many readers' hearts. An #OwnVoices novel that will be an important addition to any collection.

  • In this assured debut, science whiz Libby Monroe shines when she selects Cecilia Payne, an astronomer who first determined the composition of stars, for an American History profile of someone excluded from the textbook . . . This witty novel's heroine proves winning, whether or not she gains top prize.
