The No. 1 Car Spotter
The No. 1 Car Spotter - Atinuke,Warwick Johnson Cadwell

A good companion series to Anna Hibiscus and good to read on its own.

Nimona
Nimona - Noelle Stevenson

The first time I read Nimona I was a little ambivalent about it. I kind of wish I had read it while it was being published on the web (I followed Noelle Stevenson's tumblr but never read Nimona until it was published). I think the serialization would have helped me enjoy it more the first time.

 

I enjoyed it more when I reread it earlier this year. I was feeling bad but found the story uplifting. Sometimes monster girls' stories are just what you need.

Last Stop on Market Street
Last Stop on Market Street - Matt de la Peña,Christian Robinson

A good story if a little didactic. Add me to the number of people confused as to why this book won the Newbery. To be fair though I think the Newbery committee is often wrong (see: 2014, Flora and Ulysses).

Paper Girls
Paper Girls Volume 1 - Cliff Chiang,Brian K. Vaughan

This comic was confusing, but that's OK. Mostly it was weird to me that the girls are supposed to be 12. They look a lot older to me but maybe that's because I was born in the year the book is set?

 

I just kept reading because 1. I liked these supposedly 12-year-old girls 2. The book is gorgeous and 3. I had faith that the story was going somewhere. And I still do. I'll definitely keep up with this one.

I remember reading this book but can't remember the story or my impression of it. Must reread at some point.

 

Anyone else find it strange that this book won a Newbery?
