Someday by David Levithan

Someday (Every Day, #3)
Once again, the story is told by A, who wakes up every day in a different body. Now A knows that they are not the only person who does this because A and Nathan are being pursued by Poole, who can stay in a host body for more than 24 hours. However, they are not the only ones. How many are there? How many lives do they touch? Is one body, one life, one person better than any other? I enjoyed this intriguing book.

On The Come Up by Angie Thomas

On the Come Up
Once again, Angie Thomas has written an excellent, thought provoking book. Sixteen year old Bri wants to be a rap star, not only because she loves rap music and her late father had been a rapper, but in order to help pay the bills. The story is an excellent read and brings up many important issues. Like her first book, The Hate U Give, I think that On The Come Up should be required reading (not banned) in all high schools for both the students and the teachers and administrators.
