We Were Never Here (2021)
Andrea Bartz
"A nail-biting, immersive whirl of a read brimming with mysterious twists, turns, and a frenemyship of the most chilling proportions."
The Violin Conspiracy (2022)
Brendan Slocumb
"Utterly original and downright gripping, The Violin Conspiracy is more than a mystery--it's an unflinching peek into the heart and soul of a gifted Black violinist striving to pursue his passion in the face of adversity. Brendan Slocumb's debut is an essential lesson in artistry, prejudice, and persistence."
Neruda on the Park (2022)
Cleyvis Natera
"A dazzling triumph...Every beat of Natera's gorgeous prose pulses with urgency, humanity, and a whole lot of heart."
Not Safe For Work (2022)
Isabel Kaplan
"The rare kind of read that made me giggle just as much as it left me gutted."
