White Smoke (2021)
Tiffany D Jackson
"This heart-pounding, powerful story about a young girl trapped in a predator’s web holds up a devastating mirror to our society’s refusal to care about all victims. A call-out and condemnation of the celebrity-besotted culture that allows evil people to destroy lives."
thumb
Love Is a Revolution (2021)
Renée Watson
"This stunning book is the story I've been waiting for my whole life; where girls rise up to claim their space with joy and power. I resolve to give a copy to every teenager I know!"

This Is My Brain in Love (2020)
I W Gregorio
"Amazing story of the struggle to balance love and brains, and instead finding joy. Absolute perfection."
