Burn Baby Burn - Meg Medina

It’s hot, it’s sticky, it’s New York City in the ‘70s, and it’s the Summer of Sam. Nora Lopez’s confusing teenage life in Queens is now even more so thanks to this period of serious unrest. Nora is bright and brave in the face of a disturbed and violent brother, an absent father, a pervasive fear of being out on the streets, and the usual ups and downs of adolescence. Meg Medina’s enthralling novel Burn Baby Burn (Candlewick, $17.99) is page-turning historical fiction that immerses you in Nora’s world, from her darkest fears to the friendships (and romance!) that keep her going. Ages 13-17.
