To defy a wish, to defy history, Tarisai faces down nameless mothers, kings who erase women from their narrative, and vengeful spirits of the Underworld. Morally gray characters grapple to survive on their own terms in a world thick with culture, dangerous politics, and magic, including a girl born of a wish who comes of age in a kingdom founded on order at the expense of justice. Ifueko's story sings wildly on the page, irresistible and engaging until the end. --J ulia, Youth Advisory Board Member

This book practically leapt into my hands, demanding to be read, and it was spectacular. Ashley attends a wealthy private school in the hills of LA. Ashley is Black, her best friends are white. Certain behaviors haven't escaped Ashley's attention, but she has mostly avoided interrogating these relationships until four LAPD officers are acquitted in the violent beating of Rodney King. As the city erupts around her, Ashley finds herself questioning her friendships, her family and her identity, as well as negotiating her place in the past and present of the city itself. Nuanced, layered, filled with side characters that captivate, this is a story not to be missed. --Elese
Gar wants to be liked. He wants to be taller and stronger and impressive and respected. So when he finds out that one of the side effects of the supplements he's taken his whole life is stunting growth, he stops taking them. Now he's taller, stronger and getting everything he wants. At least at first. Don't miss this fun modern twist on Beast Boy's origins, or any in this series for that matter. --Lucia
