From Twinkle, With Love, by Sandhya Menon

Over at Kirkus this week, I've got my monthly round-up of SOME of the May books I'm looking forward to—there are a TON of books coming out this month, so this list is BY NO MEANS comprehensive.

Here are two of the fourteen:

The Way You Make Me Feel, by Maurene Goo

Clara Shin’s summer is ruined when a prank at school results working in her being forced to work in her father’s food truck for the summer…WITH HER ARCH-ENEMY. But sometimes arch-enemies are just misunderstood, and sometime romance blossoms between employees from different food trucks. I AM ALWAYS HERE FOR FOOD TRUCK ROMANCES.

Give Me Some Truth, by Eric Gansworth

An ‘80s-era Battle of the Bands story told by alternating narrators! Carson Mastick doesn’t know if he wants to stay at home at Tuscarora Reservation after he graduates, or go on the road with his band; Magpie Bokoni, a new member of Carson’s band, has just moved back to the reservation after years in the city. Family and friendship and protest and music. YES, PLEASE, AND THANK YOU.
