The Night Country by Melissa Albert
The Hazel Wood, Melissa Albert’s first book in this remarkable series, was fiercely beloved at BookPeople! Lola called it “thriller, gothic, fantasy, coming of age, and mystery… all of these and so much more.” The Night Country follows Alice back into the dark world of fairy tales, despite her fight to live an ordinary, magic-free life.
An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States, adapted for young readers by Jean Mendoza & Debbie Reese
We were lucky to host Jean Mendoza late last year, where she spoke about the research that went behind adapting Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz’s important book for the younger set, as well as obscure history, microaggressions, and so much more. Bookseller Rachel R read both editions of the book and interviewed the author. Their conversation can be read here.
Wicked Fox by Kat Cho
From TTBF author Kat Cho, this book comes recommended by Art Director Tomoko, who says, “For fans of teen vampire novels and the youthfulness of ERAGON, this fresh-faced debut submerges readers into a Korean legend made contemporary. Dark and dramatic, WICKED FOX isn’t afraid to kill, but the monster-makes-good storyline delivers a heartfelt message: Even if you’ve never experienced love, it doesn’t mean you’re not worthy of love. So glad we’re getting more #ownvoices stories–I especially loved the food mentions (tteok-japchae is a favorite of mine)!”
