Virtually Yours [Sarvenaz Tash]; 2019 YA Releases

I've already read Virtually Yours by Sarvenaz Tash! It has such a fun and fascinating premise and it's diverse! Now, truthfully, I didn't love this story.

Usha and the Stolen Sun by Bree Galbraith and illustrated by Josée Bisaillon is one of those children's books that looks like it's going to have an utterly brilliant message.
