Lia Louis recommends
Out of Touch (2020)
"One of those books that had me ignoring my phone, family and sensible bedtimes. Immersive, gorgeously rich and beautifully written. I loved it."
The Extraordinary Hope of Dawn Brightside (2020)
"I fell instantly in love with Dawn Brightside. She made my heart soar and ache all at once, and I was immediately rooting for her. It takes a talent to make you love and care for a character, which is testament to Jessica Ryn’s writing clever, funny and full of heart."
