One Hundred Percent Me by Renee Macalino Rutledge

Ulysses Press; Bloom Books for Young Readers

Hardcover; May 2022

ISBN: 9781646043484

$17.95; 8×8; 32 pages; Ages 4-8

Book Description:

Many Americans with immigrant ancestors are constantly asked, “Where are you from?” The assumption is they are not from the city they were born and raised in. One Hundred Percent Me turns the question on its head, claiming belonging for so many children of color in a positive, celebratory way.

As the little girl moves through daily life in the big city, she hears some people say she looks more like her Puerto Rican dad, while others claim she takes after her Filipina mom. Should she favor one identity over the other? No! In fact, honoring every facet of her identity equally becomes the main character’s favorite affirmation.

This beautifully illustrated story celebrates our differences, as she learns how to claim her belonging and honor the heritage that makes her unique and wholly herself

48 States by Evette Davis

Flesh & Bones Books

Trade Paperback; June 7, 2022 

ISBN: 979-8985813302; e-book: 979-8985813319

$14.99; 6×9; 226 pages

Book Description:

The year is 2042, and the United States is recovering from a series of terrorist attacks that uprooted the government, revoked civil liberties, and erased two states from the map.

Widow, single mother, and Army veteran Jennifer “River” Petersen drives trucks for a living in Energy Territory No. 1, formerly known as North Dakota. Forced to enlist after her father’s death, the lines of River’s life have been redrawn, much like the United States’ map has changed. Living in a motel room with nothing but her books and a Glock handgun for company, River is weeks away from returning home when an injured man standing in the middle of the highway upends her plans.

From the moment he encounters River, Finn Cunningham knows he must choose between concealing his identity as the son of the president of the United States or be left for dead. His deception draws him and River into a megalomaniac’s deadly conspiracy to ignite a civil war and overthrow the government.

If River and Finn are going to survive, they’ll have to learn to trust one another and themselves.

Fast-paced prose, with vivid narrative and rapid-fire dialogue, 48 States is perfect for readers who loved novels like Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, California by Edan Lepucki, and Gold Fame Citrus by Claire Vaye Watkins.
