Butler Bookshelf

This week for the Butler Bookshelf, we have our eyes on How To Make Friends With The Sea by Tanya Guerrero. The middle grade novel tells the story of Pablo, a twelve year old who has spent the years following his parents’ divorce globetrotting with his zoologist mother. Pablo’s fears have multiplied over the years, and his mother has been too consumed with her work to notice. We can’t wait to read this debut novel. For more great reads, check out the list below!
