Gayle Forman recommends
I Kick and I Fly (2023)
Ruchira Gupta
"I Kick and I Fly is a powerhouse of a debut. Ruchira Gupta has crafted a page-turner of a read, stepped in place and full of indelible characters, managing to be at once propulsive and enlightening, infuriating and inspiring. But maybe most important, Heera's story is a beacon of hope to a generation of young people trying to transform an unjust world."
Imposter Syndrome and Other Confessions of Alejandra Kim (2023)
Patricia Park
"...A dazzling YA debut...that is deep, real and scathingly funny."
Yerba Buena (2022)
Nina LaCour
"Yerba Buena is not just a book to read; it's a story to revel in, so full is it of sensual pleasures?food and flowers, cocktails and home decor?all of it enveloping a sexy, magnetic and unputdownable love story of two young women fighting their way past family demons and toward each other. This is Nina LaCour's best work yet."
