"An incredible work of art that should set the stage for a Black fantasy revolution in YA. A Phoenix First Must Burn is pure Black girl magic. Every story is wholly unique and beautiful. All sixteen stories showcase strength, community, tradition, romance, and, most importantly of all, magic... The authors in this collection put their hearts and souls into every word, and it shows. In “Gilded” Elizabeth Acevedo tells a story of revolution brewing on a slavers island long ago, while Dhonielle Clayton tells of the story of a girl learning to protect her heart in “Hearts Turned to Ash,” and Ibi Zoboi imagines a world where Black girls have the power to shed their skin and kiss the sun in her story, “Kiss the Sun.” Each story is filled to the brim with magic."
