What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours is composed of several short stories that all deal with the question of secrets. While each story can stand alone, several stories are interwoven, creating a sprawling narrative that spans generations and countries. By turns funny, creepy, and mysterious, this is a book that can either be savored or devoured with equal enthusiasm.
Nowhere Boy a great read for middle schoolers, and addresses current issues in Syria and the refugee crisis without getting overly political. It’s heartfelt and focuses largely on family relationships and friendships.
Maggie Thrash brings the same depth of her first memoir and combines it with a fantastical, mysterious ghost story. Intriguing, magical, and relatable, this book is a wonderful sequel to Honor Girl.
