Teen Nonfiction Reviews:
What's new?

October 29, 2021

I've added a new page to Sonderbooks! Back in 2001, when I started the site, I was hardly aware that Teen Nonfiction was its own category. I lumped most of it in with Children's Nonfiction, and some in with Adult Nonfiction. But as I'm changing my entire website to make it mobile-friendly, it's a good time to add the new page. It will take some time to truly transfer these reviews to this section, but at least the links on this page will pull up Teen Nonfiction reviews.

If I Go Missing, by Brianna Jonnie with Nahanni Shingoose, art by Nshannacappo, takes a powerful letter written by an Indigenous woman and gives it even more punch in graphic novel form.

Happy Reading!
