    satwikagejara's book review was featured in Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus.
    Aven Green was born without arms, but, at age 13, that hasn’t stopped her from doing almost anything. Then her parents take a job running Stagecoach Pass, a rundown Western theme park in Arizona, and Aven has to leave everything she knows behind. She struggles to make friends at her new school because kids cannot see past her missing arms. But she bonds with Zion, a classmate who is insecure about his weight, and Connor, a classmate with Tourette syndrome. Then they discover a room at the park that holds bigger secrets than Aven ever could have imagined. Aven is such an inspirational character. She is able to do anything a regular person could do despite her disability. The other characters in the book are also realistic and touch the heart of the reader with their genuine nature. This book is a great way to help children learn to accept disabilities and to treat people with kindness.

    satwikagejara's book review was featured in Ash Princess.
    This book is about a princess that is trying to take back her kingdom. Theodosia was six when her kingdom was invaded by the Kalovaxians and her mother, the Queen of Flame and Fury, was murdered right in front of her eyes. On the same day, she became a prisoner in her own castle and was crowed the Ash Princess; as a taunt to her mother’s legacy. She suffers through ten years of humiliation from the Kaiser who loves nothing more than to make her wear a crown made of ashes. One night, the Kaiser makes her kill a prisoner who turns out to be her father to prove her loyalty. After that night, Theo has decided that she cannot simply survive in this nightmare; she needs to fight back. This book is amazing and descriptive. The way the author describes the experiences Theo goes through; it is almost like you can see her pain and fury yourself. The abuse she has to go through makes you understand her philosophy and ideology more clearly. Be warned though; this book is the first of a trilogy so if you read this and enjoy it as I did, you have to read Lady Smoke and Ember Queen.

    This book is from the perspective of both a girl and a boy; hence the title. The girl, Juli, meets the guy, Bryce, two weeks before the start of second grade and she thinks she fell in love. Bryce thinks that her persistence is annoying and he is very cold to her. This continues for six years but Bryce’s feelings change toward her. Unfortunately, he upsets her very much on three separate occasions. If you want to know if they end up together, you should read the book! This book shows how people can change. Since you can see the perspectives of both characters, you can see all the misunderstandings between them, and honestly, it drove me crazy IN A GOOD WAY. Regretfully, there isn’t a Flipped #2, but there is a movie? And I watched it and it wasn’t really that bad? It is on Netfix…and on Amazon Prime if you pay…but read the book first.

    This is a graphic novel about two friends/co-workers at a pumpkin patch. Josie and Deja have worked together at the Succotash Hut for years. But this is the last day before they go off to college. Deja is a witty and confident girl who attracts boys and girls alike; rumor is she has dated pretty much everyone at the pumpkin patch at some point. Josie, on the other hand, is very serious and shy. On their last day, Deja encourages Josie to confess to his unrequited love; the girl who works at the Fudge Shoppe. If they can find her. Deja and Josie go on a goose hunt around the entire pumpkin patch trying to find this girl. But when Josie finds this girl; will it really be what he wanted? This book really caught my attention because of the inclusion of the LGBTQ+ character and the unusual setting. Let's be honest, how many graphic novels are there about love in a pumpkin patch? This book has an awesome plot twist at the end, so you should read it! No…don’t skip to the end of the book to find out what the plot twist is…you know who you are…
