The Bird and the Blade

bloody feathers and text saying the bird and the bladeBy Megan Bannen

An apple. A choice. A song. A kiss.

You will all be familiar with fairy tale retellings, but have you heard of an opera retelling? This is a retelling of the opera Turandot. Never heard of it? No worries! Not knowing the plot and ending ahead of time may just make this story even more exciting than it already is.

Carry On

Reviewed by Nicolai Hughes, Teen Advisory Council

Carry on coverCarry On by Rainbow Rowell is a great book for anyone who was a fan of the Harry Potter series, with a similar setting, and a comparable, but more diverse, cast of lovable and complex characters. It’s very progressive and modern, with several LGBTQ+ protagonists and heavy pop culture references throughout. It offers great representation for minorities. Despite appearing to be a lengthy novel, it's an easy read with a simple writing style, so it doesn't take too long to finish. This is great read if you like both magic and coming of age type stories, or if you're interested in fantasy novels that focus more on the characters than the world.
