Book spotlight for Middle Grade Carousel August 2022: Playing By the Book features the book YOU GO FIRST by Erin Entrada Kelly

Two children who meet playing online Scrabble both struggle with loneliness and loss. Charlotte’s parents are older than anyone else’s in her class, and her dad just had a heart attack.
