1. Banner in the Sky
Author: by James Ramsey Ullman
A timeless outdoor adventure story, winner of a Newbery Honor, that will appeal to fans of Hatchet and Jon Krakauer’s Into the Wild and Into Thin Air. Josef Matt, the only man to ever try to conquer this last summit of the Alps, met his end in the pursuit.
Now his son, Rudi, dares to complete the same task in memory of his father. Setting off with his father’s red shirt, Rudi must courageously pass through the same chasm that took his father’s life and finish the challenging climb in order to plant the shirt at the peak.
Banner in the Sky works well for both independent and classroom reading. The author’s own mountaineering adventures bring to life the struggles of sixteen-year-old Rudi to overcome his family’s objections and conquer the summit that killed his father. As author Allison Tebo put it: “We can feel the rock scrapping our palms, feel our toes grasping for footholds.
The thin rope cutting into our waist is the only thing that makes the difference between balanceand an endless plunge. We feel the ice-wind slicing through us, feel the blue sky that is bluest of all in a mountain shining on us, feel the savage storm screaming in our ears…

Tillie Walden’s Eisner Award winning graphic memoir Spinning captures what it’s like to come of age, come out, and come to terms with leaving behind everything you used to know. It was the same every morning. Wake up, grab the ice skates, and head to the rink while the world was still dark.
Weekends were spent in glitter and tights at competitions.Perform.Smile.And do it again.She was good.She won.And she hated it. For ten years, figure skating was Tillie Walden’s life. She woke before dawn for morning lessons, went straight to group practice after school, and spent weekends competing at ice rinks across the state.
Skating was a central piece of her identity, her safe haven from the stress of school, bullies, and family. But as she switched schools, got into art, and fell in love with her first girlfriend, she began to question how the close-minded world of figure skating fit in with the rest of her life, and whether all the work was worth it given the reality: that she, and her friends on the team, were nowhere close to Olympic hopefuls.
