TTT: YA Mysteries
Saturday, September 25, 2021
My students are obsessed with manga.
For a long time, I've had students who want to read Naruto and Dragon Ball Z ("NOT Dragon Ball, Ms. Gassaway, that's a different series!") But in the past two years, the interest in those titles has exploded beyond a few nerdy boys, and the titles students want have increased in number as well. Here are some of the series I've started trying to stock:
- Dragon Ball Z
- Legend of Zelda
- Assassination Classroom
- Attack on Titan
- Death Note
- The Promised Neverland

Where I've Been and What I Just Read
Hey. Hi. It's me. I'm back. Maybe. We'll see.
I'm just dipping my toe back into the water here with two things.
1. I just finished Firekeeper's Daughter, and it is absolutely amazing. It's very ambitious, combining a mystery, a strong #ownvoices Native American character and setting, grief and healing, meth addiction, family fault lines, sexual assault, and oh, a very sweet yet complicated romance. It's a lot, so the book is nearly 500 pages, and it is all really well done. All the stars, highly recommend, go read it.
