I hated when people said that, like it assumed strength and being a male were synonymous. There was strength in being a woman.

But something happened. Something Freddie never talked about. Something bad. Lots of people have bad stories, and if they wail and sob and tell their story to anyone who’ll listen, it’s crap. Or half crap, at least. The stuff that really hurts people, the stuff that almost breaks them… that they won’t talk about. Ever. - Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, April Genevieve Tucholke (via marcyj)



Molly made this for a post at YALSA’s The Hub — it’s worth checking out, because there are lots of additional titles in the comments! 

These are available — or soon will be — at Lawrence Public Library! 

I spy a backlist favorite (ANNIE ON MY MIND) and a Fall 2013 book we’re excited to share with the world (FREAKBOY)!
