What's a favorite book of youth fiction?
Each week, three AADL staff members will answer one question – from "What's your favorite classic?" to "What book didn't live up to the hype?" – in just five minutes.
Join the conversation in the comments section. What book would you have picked for this week's Biblio Files?
This video premieres on AADL.TV.
A youth book I would recommend is Sunny, by Jason Reynolds. It's the third book in the Track Quartet, which should be read in order, so you won't get to it right away. It is the best book I've read from the point of view of a neurodivergent person, for any age. There is something so powerful about reading a book that reads like your inner thoughts when you're not used to seeing it. I can only imagine what it would feel like to read it as a kid!
Thank you for your thoughtful comments and this recommendation! We are big Jason Reynolds fans. Long Way Down and Look Both Ways are also really excellent. Now I look forward to reading the Track Quartet! Thank you for tuning into AADL.TV and for watching Biblio Files.
Requested the quartet and a whole bunch of his other books too - thank you for the rec.!
I’m finally going to read Ghost by Reynolds!
