A short, but sweet Young Adult book, this novel is unlike any that I've read because of the characters, the plot, and.....the time travel. :)

In this book, she delves into the toddler years with chapters like "You're too old for this" and "You suck at this" and "Your judging of other parents comes back to haunt you." Part memoir and part parenting guide, this book will surely normalize any parent's experience of living with and caring for a toddler.

If you are looking for a lighthearted read, avoid reading Just Mercy. However, if you are willing to sit a little bit outside of your comfort zone and learn more about our justice system, I would recommend slowly reading Just Mercy.

This reminds me of a book that I would have read in the 5th grade. It's historical fiction and it is definitely appropriate for the upper-elementary crowd. It would be a great book for kids to read when they study this time period in US History. As for my adult readers out there, this may not be up your alley, but it may make great reading for your niece.
An exciting note: I just discovered a Little Free Library in my neighborhood as I was walking around last week. I am excited to leave this book there for another reader to pick up!

Translated from Swedish, this book is a delightful read about finding life after loss and creating family in a community. Sweet, funny, and hopeful.
