The Whole Story of Half a Girl by Veera Hiranandani (Delacorte Books for Young Readers, 10 January 2012)

My other blog crush, Ari of Reading In Color, is waiting for this to be released. A half Indian, half Jewish American protagonist? I'm waiting with you, Ari!

Ohohoho, and the awesomeness continues.

School Library Journal named their picks for the Best Books of 2011, and they include:


The House Baba Built: An Artist's Childhood in China by Ed Young (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers)

Dear Ed Young, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. . .
