Matt de la Peña recommends
The Inquisitor's Tale (2016)
Adam Gidwitz
"A profound and ambitious tour de force. Gidwitz is a masterful storyteller."
Gem & Dixie (2017)
Sara Zarr
"This may be the most powerful sibling story I've ever read. Gem and Dixie's road trip is heartbreaking and honest and beautifully rendered by one of my all-time favorite writers. This is Sara Zarr at her absolute best."
