You guys, I have been in a big-time reading slump this month. Actually, more like a big-time life slump I haven’t read anything, blogged, posted–nothing! Then the MIGHTY HEART OF SUNNY ST. JAMES arrived from the Kid Lit Exchange and changed all that! It was the absolute perfect book to wake me out of my funk.

The Mighty Heart of Sunny St. James review

Oh my word! Oh my ❤️!

Buckle up, because you are about to fall in love with Sunny St. James, a 12-year-old girl who is recovering from a heart transplant—and she’s ready to start a new life. A life that leaves unkind friends, unwelcome thoughts, and loneliness behind. A life that might include her birth mother, who resurfaced after eight years, and a new BFF that appeared out of nowhere.

It’s a beautiful, inclusive story about love, family, and identity. I especially recommend it for people looking for exposure to LGBTQ themes, but it touches on so many facets of identity that it will speak to many, many kids.

Recommended for one and all! ?????
