Doubts on Avicenna: A Study and Edition of Sharaf Al-Dīn Al-Masʿūdī's Commentary on the Ishārāt iCh keeps her head down and her lips zipped And until this year that was fine for her She has her two best friends her family her good grades etc And yeah her sister Hanas all about protests and Black Lives Matter but that s just a Hana thing right Yet when a public trial of a policeman comes up with a not guilty verdict and Shayla sees a protest firsthand she starts thinking of ways that she can make a difference Small ways naturally but sometimes something that seems small can make a huge differenceFor good or for ll this book s already being compared to Jerry Craft s New Kid a comic that covers a lot of the same territory Forest of Darkness ifn a different format The difference however was pretty clear to me from the get go Craft s book s about the self and how t reacts n a world filled with microaggressions Ram e s s far about the world outside of the self How you have a hard time seeing outside of your own lens and then suddenly t s like you can t unsee anything any Shayla s certainly concerned about school her friends her crushes sports etc but there s this sneaky secondary plot as well nvolving her older sister and what s happening Love, Again: The Wisdom of Unexpected Romance in the wider world When Shayla marchesn a protest for the first time she physically separates herself from a lot of other middle grade heroes and heroines that talk the talk but refuse to walk the walk The end result s a book that simultaneously separates tself from the packChildren s books have so many jobs to do that saying they should all do this or they should all do that s ludicrous Better to just zero n on what a particular book does particularly well Take Ms Ram e s for example Her book has the unenviable job of making complex social ssues ssues that a fair number of adults have been known to scratch their heads over comprehensible even self evident to kids For example there Entranced (The Donovan Legacy, is Shayla and her friends One friends Latinx and one s Asian American Shayla gets a little grief from her sister and some of the girls at school for not hanging out with black friends nstead Now her reaction to this s exactly what you d expect to find n a middle grade novel She defends her choices points out that diversity n friendship s a good thing and even calls her little group the United Nations And n most books that would be the end of that little discussion but f there s one thing you ll learn from A Good Kind of Trouble t s that difficult conversations don t get dropped simply because they ve grown nconvenient There comes a time Buried in this novel when Shayla s mother talks to her and gives her some advice on why she might want to have some black friends too She says You may find as you get older that there s something comfortable or I don t know comfortingn having friends who can relate to things you might be going through The talk makes t clear that her mother s happy for Shayla to keep her friends but also that she should leave herself open to other possibilities as well And later Shayla herself realizes that t would be nice to have A friend who knew being black meant all sorts of things That s the kind of nuance you only get n the best books for kids *Did I mention at any point here that the book s fun And weirdly satisfying n all * I mention at any point here that the book s fun And weirdly satisfying n all of ways There s a moment late n the game when Shayla s mother gives one of the book s antagonists a tongue lashing that you just want to read and reread a couple times for the sheer pleasure of witnessing JUSTICE And when Shayla s then made to apologize to her oppressor she remembers a bit of advice from her father that s one of the wisest lines I ve read n a one of the wisest lines I ve read n a Don t ever leave your enemies empty handed Give them a bone to gnaw on or they will keep on trying to bite you This A Certain Justice (Adam Dalgliesh, is all followed not long thereafter by a pretty darn satisfying ending The kind where things aren t perfect but they re better and our heroine has certainly learned a fair amount about herself on top of the world around her The only part of the book that didn t gel for me was the subplot with Tyler He s a boyn Shayla s class that has a crush on her a feeling that The Shadow Reader is not reciprocatedn the least As a reader you re supposed to come to the realization that Shayla s being unfair to the kid and should be nicer to him But we re coming out with this Cinderella Unmasked (Fairytale Fantasies in a post MeToo era and Tyler seriously steps over some major boundariesn this book Even before he kisses her something she confronts him about n time which s good he s

getting all The Power Of A Choice in her space So when Yolanda tells Shayla she should be nicer to him I wanted someone to back Shayla up pointing out that the guy has to learn about personal space and pronto I had visions of older Tyler stalking some girl saying Hey I m a nice guy echoing Yolanda s statement butn a twisted wayI wonder what percentage of kids today has been to protests at some point n their young lives Certainly t must be higher than I was a child The dea of protesting something has long since lost ts rarity but I can understand how difficult The Case for Paleolibertarianism and Realignment on the Right it would be to work one naturallynto a middle grade novel Folks are sometimes referring to this book as a younger version of The Hate U Give Maybe but I worry that kind of designation doesn t really give credit to what Ram e has put together here She s taken the complexity of the real world with all Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling its police shootings and racism and destructive tendencies and madet personal for young readers I don t care what kid you hand this book to Every single one of them will understand what s going on here and maybe what s going on Monsieur Pain in the wider world The new reuired readingFor ages 9 12.

A Good Kind of Trouble

Lisa Moore Ramée ↠ 9 SUMMARY

ES EVERYTHING SO WELL IT S BEAUTIFUL Sometimes people say they wish they had a book when they were younger but I don t know f I ve felt that until I read this I really really wish my seventh grade self had this book I was just like Shayla for a while I got straight As and was uiet and teachers loved me and getting Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts. in trouble was the worst thing I could think of And then Trayvon and Tamir and Philando and Sandra were killed and all that changed just like police brutality changes that for ShaylaI really loved having a book about a Black girl that sort of has the low stakes of middle grade but everything felt liket was a big deal f that made sense It covered friendship ssues and crushes and all the normal middle school things Shayla was normal but also black and I loved that Also loved that her mom was very Black and did not let her get away with anything That s also my mom And I really really appreciated that the author ncluded Asian characters speaking n AAVE because Glitter Bomb (A Scrapbooking Mystery, it s such a big thing especially since I go to a predominantly whiteAsian university now I like that Shayla was able to air her grievances with how her friends treat her whent comes to race her best friends are Japanese American and Latinx without the friendship falling apart They talked about the troubles each of them had and I really appreciatedI wish there had been of a conversation about cultural appropriation There sort of was with Julia the friend who randomly starts speaking AAVE but Il morto di Maigret it sort ofs just Shayla telling her that she says words wrong and also thinking that Julia speaking that way s annoying But I wish they talked about t n an accessible way the way they discussed police brutality There was also a part that rritated me where Shayla wears a Black Lives Matter arm band to school and a boy tells her blue lives matter Shayla Globalization: A Multi-Dimensional System, Third Edition is like Oh of course they do And then there s a part about how she doesn t hate cops and no onen her family does etc I hate the Billionaires Contract Engagement (Kings of the Boardroom idea that A Black people are not allowed to be angry at cops when the law enforcement systemn general have brutalized Black people since Sexual Secrets itsnception B That Black people aren t really allowed to hate anyone That people are allowed to hate us and we have to love them back or be very graciousC I hated that t didn t delve nto that It s very disingenuous Like t doesn t matter f you don t hate ndividual cops the ssue Purely Sexual is the fact that they are very likely to kill you and they will not be prosecuted It s the system It doesn t matterf your Aunt Amy The West Transformed: A History of Western Civilization, Vol 1, to 1715 is a cop becauset s not about her as an ndividual Anyway I really enjoyed this overall I hope girls like Shayla and I find themselves n this book and realize that t s good to get n trouble for mportant things I ve been wanting to venture nto reading middle grade and this was a really great start nto that journey This was such an mpactful and empowering story and once I started listening to the audiobook I did not want to stop listening to The Anathema Cell it It follows a young black girl whos all about not getting nto trouble Change and uncomfortable situations make her hands tch But change and uncomfortable situations she does get thrown Pookie-Pie into and we follow hernto junior year and seeing how she deals with said trouble I love that this story was ntertwined with everyday young silly adventures most children get nto whilst addressing current Calling Home issues Shayla really comesnto her own n this novel and I love how the author navigated her through those changes More mportantly I respected how the author gave young kids the power to be able to make changes n their own ways within their own capacities It s a brilliant story about friendship ndividuality race standing up for what you believe The Structure of Soviet History: Essays and Documents in and so much I need to get myself a physical copy pronto Really cool way of showing how younger teens can engagen social justice and how adults are always trying to tell them to be nice and also gnore their voices Loved Shayla s parents encouraging her to use her voice Wow what a great book says the author of said book Don t me anyone With Covid 19 going on t was time to have some fun The good thing about serving 19 going on t was time to have some fun The good thing about serving a book committee s that Date Me it helps you to read outside of your comfort zone The bad thing about serving on a book committees that t makes you read outside of your comfort zone It s funny but as someone who reads a lot of children s novels my nstinct s to revert back to my 12 year old self A steady diet of fantasy punctuated by the occasional mystery and I d be good to go But being a grown up means trying different things all the time Because wouldn t you know t a lot of the time you end up liking the things you try Take realistic contemporary fiction I often do read Fitness for Geeks: Real Science, Great Nutrition, and Good Health it as part of my day to day job butt sn t something I d nstinctively select were Cause Of Fear it not for the recommendations of review journals and trusted fellow librarians When Lisa Moore Ram e s A Good Kind of Trouble started rakingn the starred professional reviews I was ntrigued I knew very little about t but why not give The Game of Love it a go The description of the book wasn t doingt any favors though saying t would capture your heart
