- Frangipani by Célestine Vaite (2006): In Tahiti, it's a well-known fact that women are wisest, mothers know best, and Materena Mahi knows best of all--or so everyone except for her own daughter thinks. Soon enough, mother and daughter are engaged in a tug-of-war that tests the bonds of their love. (Great Mother's Day pick!)
- Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations by Mira Jacob (2020): Like many six-year-olds, Mira Jacob's half-Jewish, half-Indian son, Z, has questions about everything. At first they are innocuous enough, but as tensions from the 2016 election spread from the media into his own family, they become much, much more complicated. (Great for Mother's Day and Jewish Heritage Month.)
- Once More with Chutzpah by Haley Neil (2022): An intensely readable and moving YA debut about a teen who grapples with questions of her Jewish identity, mental health struggles, and sexuality on an unforgettable trip to Israel. (Perfect for Jewish Heritage Month.)
- Binti: The Complete Trilogy by Nnedi Okorafor (2020): Follow Binti's journey in this groundbreaking sci-fi trilogy. Binti, a young Himba girl with the chance of a lifetime: to attend the prestigious Oomza University. Despite her family's concerns, Binti's talent for mathematics and her aptitude with astrolabes make her a prime candidate to undertake this interstellar journey.
