Published: Balzer + Bray - October 20th, 2020

This tale has shape-shifting, ancient curses, and a darkly enchanted wood, but most importantly, the world is effortlessly queer and diverse in a way that feels both classic and modern.  Cerys and Fox are the kind of witty, squabbling friends-to-lovers pair that I adore, and both grow so beautifully over the course of the novel. More, more, more!

I haven't loved a music-themed book this much since AUDREY, WAIT! Hahn perfectly captures that elusive feeling of listening to your favorite song for the first time; that sheer wonder and joy of discovering a new classic transferred to the ecstasy and anxiety of first love. You'll want to press "repeat" on More Than Maybe again...and again...and again.

Published: Razorbill - June 30th, 2020

A soon-to-be sci-fi classic that feels both ingenious and totally familiar. Johnson's mastery of language is absolutely stellar and her worldbuilding has boundless energy. Highly recommended to fans of Scythe, Dune, and Heart of Iron.

Published: Soho Teen - April 7th, 2020

This gorgeous exploration of two Muslim girls centuries apart is about reclaiming voices that have been silenced. Ahmed nails multiple voices here blending Laila's romantic prose and Khayyam's razor sharp cultural observations to tell a story about hidden histories. Mad, Bad, & Dangerous to Know will delight fans of Lovely War, The Downstairs Girl, and Jennifer Donnelly's Revolution.

Reverie Cover Image

Published: Sourcebooks Fire - December 3rd, 2019

Reverie is a rich tapestry of storytelling, jam-packed with diverse characters, intricate dream sequences, and one seriously magical drag queen. A great comp for The Hazel Wood, Labyrinth Lost, and City of Bones.
