Amber Benson recommends
Heroine Complex (2016)
(Heroine Complex, book 1)
Sarah Kuhn
"Smart, sexy, and filled with beautifully fleshed-out/kick-ass women, Heroine Complex is the kind of read that sticks in your brain like a fanged cupcake.... I adored it."
Chosen Ones (2020)
Veronica Roth
"With Chosen Ones, Veronica Roth keeps you guessing: playing with perception, multiverse theory, and the struggles that go along with being ‘chosen’ to save the world...she’s created a universe that you never want to leave."
