Ever since Hurricane Katrina, it's been Ramona and her family against the world. But when her sister Hattie gets pregnant, Ramona knows that her dream of getting out of her small town is slipping away. The return of childhood friend Freddie provides a welcome distraction, but as Ramona's feelings for Freddie grow, she begins to question whether her identity as an out-and-proud lesbian fits as well as it once did. A nuanced exploration of poverty, sexuality, family, and joy.

Ignore the cover. Instead, imagine some zany, cutting edge fashion illustration that's been run over by a heavy steel sculpture. This is a funny, sad, unique, and deep novel of the lengths two teens will go to get into a private arts high school. Featuring two authentic teen voices (one male, one female) this is not to be missed!

Caraval is pure magic. Loved The Night Circus? You will fall in love with this book from the first page. I picked it up and couldn't put it down. The magic is dark, mysterious, and you never know what to expect. This book will enchant you, delight you, captivate you and keep you guessing. For any fans of magic, especially dark magic, this is the book for you.
