Top 3 Right Now: Jillian

This week we are featuring Jillian, who works at our Lake Stevens Library!
 What books are you loving right now, Jillian?
MARTians by Blythe Woolston

A delightfully subversive and subtle critique of consumer culture and the abuse of power in an environmentally-desolate twenty-minutes-into-the-future setting.


Popular by Maya van Wagenen

A girl’s charming, hilarious attempt to follow an advice book from the 1950s on how to improve her social standing – and what else she gains along the way.


Boxers and Saints by Gene Luen Yang

A pair of interlinked graphic novels about the 1898 Boxer Rebellion in China told from two points of view – a boy losing everything and a girl who stands to gain a better life. Amazing art, fascinating history, and an unexpected, tearjerker ending.

Awesome picks! These are all great reads, and thought provocative in their own ways. Thanks so much!
