"Hard, yet heartwarming"
Fighting Words by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley: Very moving. Fighting Words won the 2021 Newbery award, and I think it deserves that honor. It's a hard, yet heartwarming read that explores some of my favorite tropes, like sisterhood and kids in foster care. Don't let the age of the main character fool you: this book is about important topics and kids, teens, and adults alike should read it.
