Marie Lu's The Kingdom of Back is a historical fantasy featuring Nanerl--Mozart's older and often forgotten sister. Nanerl and her brother escape into a land they've created for themselves--a land full of faeries, upside down trees, and sonatas. The vibe I got while reading was very Hansel & Gretel--not all is as seems with the gingerbread house made of sweets. Marie Lu's illustrations of this magnificent world the two Mozart children have created is gorgeous! A dark, magical, and mysterious read. Definitely read this book--especially if you’re living in a constant state of escapism like I am.

After we lost my dad, this was the first book I could actually read and finish. The main character resonated with me and felt so human. Though the subject matter is difficult (and somewhat taboo), the author approaches it with a tender hand and a courageous heart. I owe her a debt of gratitude for helping to anchor me when all I could do was float. CW: Suicide, mental illness

As soon as I read Frankly in Love, I knew I was destined to read EVERY SINGLE ONE of David Yoon's books. This novel, like his debut, is laugh out loud funny and so much more than a simple love story. Do yourself a favor and buy this book. It's so refreshing and a much needed distraction in these crazy times.

This is the queer feminist fairytale adaption you’ve been craving. It's the story of the world Cinderella left behind and the women fighting the power structures left in place. Like any good fairytale, it's beautiful and horrifying, but it leaves you feeling hopeful.
