Danny has two problems--no one knows she's transgender, and she just inherited the powers of the world's greatest superhero--which also transformed her into a body that matches her gender identity. I couldn't stop reading and picked up the second book immediately.

Rani Arturus just wants to win her chess tournament and maybe flirt with Gwen, the cute girl in the audience. Instead, she pulls Excalibur out of a stone and Merlin shows up wearing a space suit and now she, Gwen, and her childhood friend, Lance, must work together to protect the world from the Fae. A wonderful and unique twist on a classic tale.

Few books moved me as a young reader more than Sabriel. When few well rounded female characters were available for a twelve-year-old, Sabriel was a blessing. I stumbled across the book by accident and was immediately immersed in a world where one girl stands on the border of death and protects the living from its denizens. Sabriel must quickly come into her birthright and save her father from the final gateway of death and in the process, save her world.

You didn’t know you needed a Civil War era zombie book—but you do. In Dread Nation, Justina Ireland draws a compelling, tense, page turner that both makes your heart pound in suspense and makes you think about race with its nuanced writing. In short, it is genius, and you need to read it. (Even if you don't like zombie books.)
