Review of Suggested Reading:

When sixteen-year-old Clara Evans responds to her school’s overreaching book ban by starting an underground library in her locker, she’s one hundred percent sure she knows all there is to know about the importance of books and their impacts on the people who read them.

But, when her secret book hustling sparks a wildfire of unforeseen self-doubt, confusing friendships and life-altering consequences, she’s forced to wrestle with what she’s always believed about books and the freedoms that connect us to our world.
