Newbery Jump, Caldecott Bump 2019

It hit the list last week at #8. This week, it fell off, but that may be because copies became scarce after all the copies in stores were snatched up. I’ll be checking to see if it returns after the next print run.
And now for Merci Suárez Changes Gears by Meg Medina:
It went to the second slot last week. This week it went to #3. Here’s hoping it sticks around for a long time.
