YA Book of The Day:
#1 New York Times bestseller! Goodreads Choice Award for the best young adult novel of the year!
In this sequel to the acclaimed Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda—now a major motion picture, Love, Simon—we follow Simon’s BFF Leah as she grapples with changing friendships, first love, and senior year angst.
When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat—but real life isn’t always so rhythmic.
She’s an anomaly in her friend group: the only child of a young, single mom, and her life is decidedly less privileged. She loves to draw but is too self-conscious to show it. And even though her mom knows she’s bisexual, she hasn’t mustered the courage to tell her friends—not even her openly gay BFF, Simon.
So Leah really doesn’t know what to do when her rock-solid friend group starts to fracture in unexpected ways. With prom and college on the horizon, tensions are running high.
It’s hard for Leah to strike the right note while the people she loves are fighting—especially when she realizes she might love one of them more than she ever intended.
Today’s Book of The Day is sponsored by this week’s Kids’ eBook of The Week:
This is the second in the “Big Ideas For Little People” series from Certified Mindfulness Coach Melissa Maxx.
Fabulous Freddy is in a very bad mood.
Freddy doesn’t like being in a bad mood.
He asks his Mom for advice.
She explains that it is perfectly normal to feel bad, sad or mad sometimes. The key is to let yourself feel your feelings and then let it go.
Freddy learns the importance of using mindfulness when dealing with emotions like sadness, anger or frustration.
Maxx’s first book, “Mindfulness For People Who Suck At Being Mindful” had big ideas for grownup people.
Her “Big Ideas For Little People” books for kids offer a way for children to start a mindfulness practice early on.
The younger we start talking about, and practicing emotional intelligence, the better!
Written in verse, with fun, colorful illustrations!
Kids can benefit from mindfulness too!
