Bug doesn’t want to spend the summer learning how to apply makeup or plan a new wardrobe to get ready for middle school, like best friend Moira. Bug has more important things to do, like figuring out why a ghost is haunting Bug in the eerie old house that is home. And maybe in figuring that out, Bug might also discover another important truth. Too Bright to See masterfully blends a creepy (but not scary) ghost story with dealing with grief and the struggle to find one’s true self. (Dial Books 2021) Ages 10-12. Newbery Honor Book. National Book Award finalist. Stonewall Book Award.
