Featured Book of the Week

The Last Cuentista won the Newbery award for literature in 2022, and I loved it!  It takes place in the future and people are leaving Earth to go live on a distant planet far, far away.  Petra’s family is onboard one of the ships.  But something goes terribly wrong, and she has to try to find the rest of her family and survive the evil Collective who have taken over the ship.
