The title of Brandy Colbert’s award-winning book Little and Lion comes from the names of the two main characters, Suzette and Lionel, two stepsiblings in a biracial family who have a close and trusting relationship where “Little” is Lionel’s nickname for his “little sister” and “Lion” is short for Lionel and is a special name given to him by her. The story is told from the perspective of Suzette, who has come home to stay with her family in Los Angeles for the summer after her first year at a boarding school in New England. As the story unfolds, we discover she was sent away for school this year because Lionel has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and her parents felt it would be easier for teens to not be a distraction for one another while he struggles through treatment and medication adjustment. The story ultimately is about friendship, family, trust, and how mental illness, religion, identity, and race are aspects challenging or strengthening many families, blended or not. The story content is mature (some recreational drug and under-age alcohol use, profanity, some sexual content described although not graphically) and presented by the author in ways that show consequences and reflection, so that the plot’s tension and the story’s lighter moments feel genuine. The writing is simple and while the story sounds complicated, it’s just as messy as many real families can become and resolves with questions remaining, some solutions that didn’t quite work, but also with a clean sense of discovery, hope, and honesty that’s refreshingly relatable.

teen fiction (LGBTQ, ethnic diversity, mental health and differently abled, unmarried blended family in Los Angeles). I liked the part about speaking out against microaggressions (or in this case, blatantly wrong statements). There was a lot more diversity (all kinds!) than I was used to seeing in a book, but since this is more or less what the world actually looks like, this is a good thing. I also liked Suzette's small step progress as she figures out who she is and whom she likes, and how to behave accordingly--it is a confusing period in her life and I thought Colbert did a very nice job of helping Suzette begin to navigate through it. Well done. ( )

This book is amazing. I grew up in echo park and it’s descriptions of my home are so eerily accurate and truly describe what it’s like to live there. Also the story was very accurate in my experience of figuring yourself out sexuality wise and understanding your culture better. I loved the characters. I loved the story. This book is so good. I won’t stop singing it’s praises. ( )

Suzette and Lionel are step-siblings that have a very close relationship, until Lion begins struggling with a mental illness and Suzette is sent off to boarding school on the other side of the country. This was a great book that incorporated blended families, exploring one's sexuality, and the pain of dealing with a family member with bipolar disorder. ( )
