January Releases

I’m pretty sure I’ll need to add more titles to this month’s list because these titles were quite elusive. The books by Jason Reynolds and Jason Griffin and Varian Johnson were the last titles I found, and they should have been among the first. I’ll definitely watch for them at the local library! Please use that comments if you know of any MG or YA books I need to add to this list.
