If you had to predict, what genre or subgenre do you think is primed to be the next Big Thing in the next year or so? I would say stories about immigrants, refugees, and the unique experiences of marginalized groups especially by ownvoices authors will continue to be popular. Senzai among many more. We also have more and more books coming out that tell stories of police violence in developmentally appropriate ways like Ghost Boys by Jewell Parker Rhodes and Blended by Sharon Draper. Any comments about where you see genre fiction heading?

So my advice to authors, take the spark of your unique life experiences and let that burn throughout your story. My advice to educators - scour those shelves to find a wider variety of books. Look for opportunities like KidsNeedMentors or reach out to your local schools and libraries. If you missed those, go check out episodes 66 and But today is all about looking forward into the new year. So, buckle up and get ready to add to your wish list. And remember - no need to go hunting for a pen and paper. Before we jump in, just remember that this is just a sampling of all the incredible books coming out this year.
Thank you, Mel! On January 29th another Hilo is coming our way! Hilo 5: Then Everything Went Wrong. The classic is reimagined as a blended family living in modern-day New York City. But his parents enroll him in a prestigious private school instead, where Jordan is one of the few kids of color in his entire grade. Looks amazing!! There were lots of smiles among my students today when I told them that news! Perfect launch for a fun summer read. And have you seen the cover? Love it, love it, love it! Also - I was interested to hear that R.
Palacio is publishing her first graphic novel Wonder story this fall called White Bird. So be on the lookout for that one September 3rd as well. Guts - the long-awaited new Raina Telgemeier graphic memoir is out September 17th!! And then…. Drumroll please…… Mighty Jack and Zita the Spacegirl!! I knew it! That last page in Mighty Jack and the Goblin King was just too good not to be followed up with a joint adventure. This one draws on her personal experiences and is the story of two friends - Moon and Christine. I think, maybe, possibly..
No title, no date, no synopsis - nada! Finally - another graphic novel to be on the lookout for later in is Twins by author Varian Johnson who you may know from The Parker Inheritance and illustrator Shannon Wright. Alyson Gerber, author of Braced, will have a new novel out called Focused. Definitely a book a lot of my students will be able to connect with!
So look for that one in August. Just like Sticks and Stones and Bubbles, this one is also magical realism. In the pages of her notebook, she writes all about Zoe--the most amazing best friend anyone could dream of. But when pretend Zoe appears in real life thanks to a magical experiment gone right, Jade isn't so sure if she likes sharing her imaginary friend with the real world.
Another treat in store for you this fall is the third novel by Elly Swartz - Give and Take. Riley has a lot of wishes. He wishes bullies at school would stop picking on him. He wishes Dylan, his 8th grade crush, liked him, and Riley wishes he would stop wetting the bed. But most of all, Riley wishes for his mom to come back home. This one is out January 15th. One book that keeps popping up into my radar is the middle grade debut of Padma Venkatraman called The Bridge Home about four children who discover strength and grit and family while dealing with homelessness.
That one comes out Feb 5th so be on the lookout for that one.

But when Aggie is purchased by twelve-year-old Fritz, and Alastair is adopted by elderly dance-enthusiast and pie-baker Albertina Plopky, the future looks ready to crash-land. Since one of my goals this year is to introduce my students to more science fiction, a story about a school on a spaceship orbiting Jupiter would be perfect! This March is the debut of Julia Nobel with The Mystery of Black Hollow Lane about a girl who gets shipped off to a British boarding school and finds a box of medallions that might just be connected to the disappearance of her father.

Hurricane Season by debut author Nicole Melleby comes out May 7th and oh how do I want to read this novel! Also that Van Gogh was a brilliant man. The story follows a rule-abiding girl who must team up with her trouble making cousin, goofy younger brother, and his best friend to unravel a mysterious haunting in their tiny Southern town. Also coming this spring is a book that I immediately knew I wanted to read.
The book follows Nova, an autistic, nonverbal, space-obsessed year-old who is awaiting the Challenger shuttle launch and the return of her big sister, Bridget, as she struggles to be understood by her new foster family.
I was a 4th grader when The Challenger Disaster happened and vividly remember watching it happen live on tv, so I am really interested to see how that plays out in this book. But when she adds some rather…. So look for that one on June 4th. And if your kids are looking for a fun spooky read this summer, Ollie Oxley and the Ghost comes out on June 18th and looks really cute. So, uh… yeah Also coming out this September is The Light in the Lake by Sarah Baughman - a book about a young girl who finds herself caught between her love of science and her late twin brother's belief in magic.
This one is called Minor Incidents and Absolute Uncertainties. I just love her titles!
