I do not have the words for how much I enjoyed HURRICANE SEASON or how important a book I think it will be to many kids Fig and her dad are on their own She's a sixth grader trying to navigate that tumultuous age while simultaneously taking care of her dad an out of the game musician whose mental health has deteriorated over time Fig has the whole world on her shoulders and then some And she handles that burden with the absolutely perfect blend of grace and frazzled exhaustionI don't say this lightly HURRICANE SEASON is an extraordinary achievement It soars on the back of its big themes Family mental health learning to be okay with who you love But it was particularly powerful in the small moments Fig contending with feelings for the girl who works at her library Fig being overwhelmed with emotion and not just gratitude at small kindnesses Fig's grounded territorialism about who has the right to save her dad Her frustration at the reality that it can't fall to her aloneAlso I won't lie I learned a ton about Vincent Van GoghThere are a lot of incredible middle grade books coming out in 2019 Please read this one

O experience life the way an artist does But then Fig’s dad shows up at school disoriented and desperately searching for Fig Not only has the class not brought Fig closer to understanding him it has brought social services to their doorDiving into books about Van Gogh to understand the madness of artists calling on her best friend for advice and turning to a new neighbor for support Fig continues to try everything she can think of to understand her fat. just as good and even better the third time around this book means so much to me cries so this little book means the world to me “The sadness will last forever” Vincent had said to Theo moments before he died Fig thought maybe she could understand him nowShe started thinking about curried spinach and braids and darlings—of piano chords and museums and starry nights She started thinking of her father’s arms and Mark’s arms and the comfort they gave each other that she wished they’d give her instead despite being a middle grade novel it deals with many serious topics and it does so in an amazing way beginning with tim's bipolar disorder to pain and trying to be better for the people you love to hurting and forgiving i also love the way sexuality is portrayed in this novel because it is a coming out story both for fig and her father in a way but it is not the focal point of the story i know that lgbt people are most of the time having huge issues when it comes to this but it is liberating and hopeful to read stories that don't center around hardships and homophobia both tim and fig are uestioning and are insecure but everyone is accepting and supportive and it makes me happy we deserve these kinds of stories we deserve hope and seeing people accepting themselves and being accepted by others They both loved a man who sometimes hurt them Not because he wanted to but because his mind sometimes failed him and he needed help that wasn’t always a perfect fix They both wanted him to be okay it's such a well written book and i adore tim and fig's fatherdaughter relationship SO MUCH the little family that they have means the world to me they are far from perfect but they love each other with everything they've got this book will forever hold a special place in my heart this book i cant stop crying this was so so sO SO GOOD RTC

Hurricane SeasonHer to save him from himself and to find space in her life to discover who she is even as the walls are falling down around herNicole Melleby’s Hurricane Season is a stunning novel about a girl struggling to be a kid as pressing adult concerns weigh on her It’s also about taking risks and facing danger about love and art and about coming of age and coming out And than anything else it is a story of the healing power of love and the limits of that pow. Mini reviewI received this E ARC via Algonuin Young Readers and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review DNFTrigger warning Mention of ‘sick’ parent Most likely mental illness And child services Till the point I read When I heard about this book through the publisher I was sold I was so excited and happy when I got an arc Unfortunately it wasn’t for me I didn’t like the writing style And didn’t much care for the plot or the characters I can’t speak for the mental illness rep Though from other reviewers I’ve heard it’s good Still recommend
