A 2019 Printz Award Honor Book, Deb Caletti (author of Honey, Baby, Sweetheart, and The Nature of Jade) has written another must-read. The novel takes on powerful themes such as survivor’s guilt, sexual violence and mental health. I was blown away by this book, and I highly encourage both adult and teen readers to give Caletti’s newest book a try.
First, let me apologize to those readers who are on the waiting list for Half the Sky. While certainly compelling, it is not a quick read, and I took more than my fair check out period. As a conscientious borrower, let my overdue status serve as a testament to the weight of this book.
