This is a delightful story about how a Korean American middle-grader, Chloe, feels about growing up in a town where no one else looks like her except for her family. It's hard to give a true and wonderful review w/out spoilage but what feels like a contemporary story at the beginning does take a turn into another genre that is quite exciting.

Maybe you know Marie Lu from the Legend series. Or the Warcross duology. But I'm willing to bet that Skyhunter, Marie's newest young adult sci-fi duology, has flown under your radar. Set in a military base and the midst of several warring countries, Skyhunter is full of dark twists and turns and thoughtful commentary on race, sexuality, and the consequences of colonization. The stakes are ridiculously high, the suspense a veil of smoke. Skyhunter is a must-read for fans of dystopian.

Sapphic dark academia, pulling on the complicated and witchy bonds of female relationships and weaving them into a fantastic tapestry you can’t look away from. It’s witchy and addictining and you’ll find yourself pulling back layer after layer of secrets. If this book had come out when I was in highschool, it would be my whole personality. It made me absolutely and completely feral, and I loved every second of it.

Great for kids (and adults) who love magic, intelligent animals, and thinking about death — I know you're out there, you little goth stars — MAURICE is at turns exciting, hysterical, chilling, and almost more sincere than our feline protagonist can stand.
