Join us in celebrating Under This Forgetful Sky book birthday! We sat down with Musa Lauren Yero to learn all about the inspiration behind this book.
But first, a little bit about this new YA book:
Under This Forgetful Sky is a speculative YA story of star-crossed love and resistance in a world divided by walls. The novel follows two teens on a journey across near-future Chile as they search for a cure for a mysterious virus. On paper, they’re enemies—but, of course, it turns out to be much more complicated than that. Publishers Weekly calls it a “delicately crafty sci-fi world” and Kirkus Reviews calls it an “intricate novel [that] explores the topics of power dynamics, inequality, and revolution with nuance.”

But first, a little bit about picture book:
While at school, Paula’s pants catch on a bush that rips a large hole in her pants. She tries everything to hide the hole from her classmates, only to find out that they, too, have leaky lunchboxes, spaghetti stains, and hand-me-down backpacks.

Children will follow Paula as she feels embarrassed about her torn pants, curious about patches, and excited for a possible solution that helps both her and her classmates.

Today we’re thrilled to reveal the cover for Lupita’s Hurricane Palomitas, written by Alexandra Alessandri and illustrated by Anastasiya Kanavaliuk, which releases on May 21, 2024 from Beaming Books.
A little about the book:
Kindness can be shown during even the harshest of storms.
Shutters rattled. Wind howled. As a ferocious hurricane descends upon her town, Lupita finds two baby birds who have fallen out of their nest and brings them inside to shelter them from the storm. While Lupita and her family wait out the tempest, she focuses on protecting the palomitas to alleviate her own fears and hopes she can soon reunite them with their mother.
Perfect for families living in hurricane-prone states or with children who have storm-related anxieties, Lupita's Hurricane Palomitas offers a gentle, soothing story about extending a hand of kindness to others even while facing fears of our own. The book includes Spanish-language vocabulary words and a glossary in the back.
