I was SO excited that my local library purchased this book. Cannot wait to read it!!
Felix Ever After
by Kacen Callender
I’ve read many times that reading fiction helps people be more empathetic. I agree. I don’t read fiction often, but Felix Ever After is certainly a book that helped me be more empathetic on topics I am still trying to learn about. What a great way to learn. This book tackles so many topics – pronouns, transgender characters, gay characters, love, romance, bullying, identity, and race. WHOAH. This book felt so real. You feel for these characters – the ones you are rooting for and even the ones you dislike. And a bonus for me was that Felix was able to express feelings through art! Bravo Kacen Callender.
All these types of books are something to aspire to, but never quite fit into my lifestyle. Maybe if I didn’t have a full time job….
If each magazine costs $5.00, I am saving $25! Multiply that times 12 months *counts fingers* -$300!! WOOHOO!
