2018 book 36

Erin Entrada Kelly's Hello, Universe
This book just won the Newbery, the first time in a long time I hadn't even heard of the winning book before! So I was eager to read it. It's about four middle school kids--a shy Filipino-American boy with a pet guinea pig and a crush on a classmate; said classmate, a deaf girl with a recurring nightmare; a Japanese-American girl who runs a business as a psychic; and the local jerk bully--and the events leading up to a memorable day in the woods. Sometimes I am a little bit meh on the Newbery winners, but this one was pretty great. A/A-.
