Can't Wait Wednesday (21)

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa of Wishful Endings. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, which was created by Jill Breaking the Spine.

Property of the Rebel Librarian by Allison Varnes

Release date: September 18th, 2018
Amazon / Book Depository / Indiebound

Summary (from goodreads): When twelve-year-old June Harper's parents discover what they deem an inappropriate library book, they take strict parenting to a whole new level. And everything June loves about Dogwood Middle School unravels: librarian Ms. Bradshaw is suspended, an author appearance is canceled, the library is gutted, and all books on the premises must have administrative approval.

But June can't give up books . . . and she realizes she doesn't have to when she spies a Little Free Library on her walk to school. As the rules become stricter at school and at home, June keeps turning the pages of the banned books that continue to appear in the little library. It's a delicious secret . . . and one she can't keep to herself. June starts a banned book library of her own in an abandoned locker at school. The risks grow alongside her library's popularity, and a movement begins at Dogwood Middle--a movement that, if exposed, could destroy her. But if it's powerful enough, maybe it can save Ms. Bradshaw and all that she represents: the freedom to read.

Why I'm excited: Okay, do you remember a while ago I read a book Maudie and Me and the Dirty Book? Remember I linked to a couple posts from authors, both recent and quite a bit older, and I talked about how I thought a more modern take on that would be interesting? (I think I did, hopefully we all remember that, and I'm not just making it up.) Anyways, I think a modern take on that would be very interesting! And I'm excited to read this.

Now, I think I've rambled enough, so what are you all excited about?

Peace and cookies,
Laina
