Named a Top Indy Book of the Year by Barnes and Noble, this novel follows Bean, an empathic and spiritually evolved 15-year-old who is determined to unravel the mystery of her brother Sam’s death. Though all evidence points to a suicide, her heart and intuition compel her to dig deeper. As one reviewer put it, “Despite the grave beginnings, Winter of the Wolf soars to a hopeful finish that left me feeling fulfilled and inspired.” It’s perfect for all ages but is a must-read for teens and for anyone who’s experienced loss or questioning the afterlife. All author proceeds support Ms. Handler’s work at the Wolf Conservation Center.

(This is a trilogy, with the final book to be released on December 21).

This is a classic novel that tells the tale of four devoted sisters – Jo, Beth, Meg, and Amy – and while it can be quite hilarious, at times, there are sad moments in there as well as the narrative seeks to teach young women that growing up isn’t always easy, as readers follow the sisters from adolescence to adulthood, with all the joy and sorrow of life in between. It especially emphasizes how one can remain a good and moral person, and reminds the reader of how wealth is not a guarantee of happiness, but rather the support of family is what is more important and valuable, thereby giving young girls the opportunity to truly learn complex and enriching lessons.

This book is a classic for a reason. It is told in a succession of smaller, more in-depth and detailed chapters, which may be a new approach for young readers. In this 110-page book, the main character, a young Latina girl in Chicago, is coming of age and, like your own adolescent, determining who and what she will become. This is a title that your child will want to read more than once since it is relatable and engaging.
