This teen comedy TV series was years ahead of its time and unappreciated when it aired in 1982-83, cancelled before the full first season could be finished. It’s a shame because it’s so smart and funny and different from anything else on TV at the time. It probably would have done better 15 or 20 years later, but it’s so endearingly ‘80s, I can’t imagine it at any other time and being so charming.

CampBy Lev AC Rosen
Camp is about Randy who wanted to make Hudson, a masculine gay guy, fall in love with him. However, Randy isn't what Hudson's type is, so he turns into "Del" for Hudson. Later on, things get complicated as they both realize that they are not who they really are.
I think the most compelling part is that it is an lgbtq+ book. I also liked it because it had diversity, with trans, non-binary, ace-spectrum, and POC representation. I also liked that it talked about toxic masculinity, gender norms. and other things too.
Goodbye From NowhereBy Sara Zarr
It has such a good twist and story line, with good character development. I couldn't put the book down when I started reading it!

If These Wings Could FlyBy Kyrie McCauley
This book covers the topic of domestic violence and abuse. There is a lot of symbolism in the novel that makes it interesting.
I think the built up tension throughout the book between Leighton and the girls and their father made for an interesting storyline. When you felt like something big was about to happen, it was hard to stop reading.
The Quantum Weirdness of the Almost-KissBy Amy Noelle Parks
I found the most compelling aspect of the book to be that I could almost escape from reality when reading it. The novel shows a plot told from 2 perspectives that are probably slightly unrealistic in today's time, but I found that to be an amazing part of the book. I could open the book, start reading, and imagine myself as a character in the story alongside Evie and Caleb. The 2 perspectives really helped that a lot in providing each event that occured with 2 different viewpoints, in some cases 1 positive and 1 negative.
