"Legendborn was unlike most fantasy books I’ve read. The world-building was incredible– Deonn weaves a modern-day society with a magical community hidden from human sight. She blends Southern Black American history and Arthurian legend in such a unique way. Understanding the hierarchy of the Legendborn was a bit complicated at first, but as the book progressed, I was quickly able to follow along. The mystery and constant action entranced me, and the unexpected twists and turns kept me turning page after page." - Andi P, Teen Press Corps

Published: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers - February 25th, 2020

"A futuristic, dystopian novel inspired by Les Misérables. The raw characters from the different social classes will uncover not only the complexities of society in general but people as well. Not everything is as it seems, especially behind closed doors (maybe even the doors of secret societies). The mind-blowing plot twists will be the icing on the cake to why you’ll want to read one more chapter (even if your parents say it’s a school night)." - Rebecca, Teen Press Corps

"Wilder Girls is Rory Power’s debut dystopian novel about a disease at a girls boarding school. On an island. Crazy, right? The forest has never been so evil, and secrets have never been so life-threatening. Friendship is more important than ever, but so is survival. Don’t forget about our good old friend curiosity. Why not cause a little trouble when everything couldn’t get worse? Or maybe it can." - Rebecca, Teen Press Corps

"This book has everything that I love; fantasy, badass female characters, unique side characters, and romance that kept me wanting more. Clare’s world building is easy to follow, and you become entranced in a world filled with half-angels, vampires, warlocks, and demons. There was an underlying mystery plot, and I thoroughly enjoyed each subplot as well. There were diverse characters that I adored, and I especially loved Cordelia. She is such a driven, brave female lead that I look up to and aspire to be like." - Andi, Teen Press Corps
