Gwenda Bond recommends
The Canopy Keepers (2024)
(Scorched Earth , book 1)
Veronica G Henry
"A vital new voice in modern fantasy."
The Wishing Game (2023)
Meg Shaffer
"Meg Shaffer's debut establishes her as one of the best. The Wishing Game sees the secret child hidden inside all of us, and it takes us on the thrilling, magical journey we all long for--where we might end up with everything we want but only if we risk it all."
I'll Stop the World (2023)
Lauren Thoman
"I'll Stop the World layers mystery upon mystery, from the everyday secrets in the lives of teens coming of age in a small town now to the dark shock waves still radiating out from deaths that took place decades before. Lauren Thoman's debut novel is a time-bending page-turner packed with twists no one will see coming. This is a story that continues to resonate long after you finish."
