Under Almond Blossoms by Anja Saskia Beyer

Under Almond Blossoms by Anja Saskia BeyerLove and loss are in the air as the almond blossom falls.

Milla has always felt alone in the world. The only child of a distant mother, she has no other family, and even her forthcoming marriage to Paul feels more like settling than true romance. But then a letter arrives, announcing that a Spanish grandmother she knew nothing about has recently died and left her a small shop in Mallorca.

Milla is confused and hurt, but determined to uncover the truth. She travels to Palma, where she is enchanted by the beauty of the old town in springtime. At the shop she now owns, she meets Leandro, a handsome local who helps her piece together the story of her grandmother, Abbi. But it’s a story full of unexpected secrets, of hidden love and bitter betrayal, and it challenges everything Milla thought she knew about her family—and herself.

Faced with these new truths, Milla has a difficult choice to make. Will she go back to Paul and be the person she was before, or follow her heart on a blossom-strewn island?

Millie moved into her grandmother’s old (and haunted) Victorian house shortly after her parents announced their divorce. That meant she had an entire summer to stay up late and play video games with her favorite person in the world, her Mimi. Millie didn’t understand why Mimi would often leave in the middle of a raid and come back hours later bruised and bloody. Until one fateful night, Mimi came home with a mortal wound and confessed a family secret.

Millie comes from a long line of curanderas and is charged with keeping the balance of the universe. Mimi was supposed to train Millie’s mother, Vida, but she wasn’t interested in honing her gifts. She just assumed she’d train Millie when the time was right. Unfortunately, time for Mimi is short and the people of Sweet Bay have a supernatural predator on their hands. Millie has no choice but to take the reins.

One Step Further by Katherine G. Johnson

One Step Further by Katherine G. JohnsonEnter to win a copy of One Step Further by Katherine Johnson, Joylette Hylick and Kathrine Moore.

This inspirational picture book reveals what is was like for a young black mother of three to navigate the difficult world of the 1950s and 60s and to succeed in an unwelcoming industry to become one of the now legendary "hidden figures" of NASA computing and space research.

Johnson's own empowering narrative is complemented by the recollections of her two daughters about their mother's work and insights about how she illuminated their paths, including one daughter's fight for civil rights and another's journey to become a NASA mathematician herself. The narrative gracefully weaves together Johnson's personal story, her influence on her daughters' formative years, her and her daughters' fight for civil rights, and her lasting impact on NASA and space exploration. Filled with personal reflections, exclusive family archival photos, and striking illustrations, readers will be immersed in this deeply personal portrayal of female empowerment, women in STEM, and the breaking down of race barriers across generations. Historical notes, photo/illustration notes, and a time line put the story into historical and modern-day context.
