The Hate U Give

By Angie Thomas

This book is the real deal. Not only is it the best YA book I have read this year, it is the best book I have read this year period. It got me from the very first page, and never let me go. If you read any book this year, let it be this one.

A Girl Called Echo (V.1 of the Pemmican Wars)

By Katherena Vermette

This beautiful graphic novel will appeal to just about any age. Echo is a lonely 13 year old Metis girl in a new school who, in the middle of history class, finds herself transported to a bison hunt in 1814 on the Saskatchewan prairie. Echo slips back and forth in time, visiting a Metis camp and witnessing the Battle of Seven Oaks.
