It read it after I heard it won the Newbery last year. It deserved the award. The author did a great job of using the traditional stories of Korea and grandmother's health problems to focus us on the two worlds that Lily is living in. I am going to start the 2022 Newbery winner, THE LAST CUENTISTA by Donna Barba Higuera, in a day or two.

In January, I had two books that I keep thinking about and wanting to go back and reread. The YA fantasy BLACK GIRL UNLIMITED by Echo Brown and the sci-fi THE SPACE BETWEEN WORLDS by Michia Johnson are books that hit one of my goals for the year to read more books by BIPOC authors. I will be rereading them both later. I would have reread them both right away but other people had holds on them, and I didn't want to hog them.
