Mark Oshiro recommends
The Grimmer (2023)
Naben Ruthnum
"A harrowing - yet often hilarious - journey into chaos, The Grimmer is a gleefully bizarre nightmare unlike anything else in YA. In Vish, I found a fellow metalhead, a unique voice in horror, and a deeply felt story about realizing when you aren't in control of your life anymore - and what one kid does to regain his agency. An unforgettable experience."
Camp Damascus (2023)
Chuck Tingle
"Jaw-dropping... both frightening and utterly cathartic. A queer nightmare of demonic proportions!"
Abeni's Song (2023)
(Abeni's Song, book 1)
P Djèlí Clark
"Abeni's Song is simply unlike anything else in the field. An astonishing adventure that managed to thrill, scare, and delight, all while telling a story that is beautifully complicated and moving. Middle grade readers, meet your new favorite author."
