Veronica Roth


USA flag (b.1988)

Veronica Roth is from a Chicago suburb. She studied creative writing at Northwestern University, and wrote DIVERGENT, her YA dystopian thriller (Katherine Tegen Books, May 2011!), while she was supposed to be doing homework. This was a decidedly good choice that will unfortunately make it difficult for her to someday lecture her future children on how important it is to get your homework done.

Shadow & Bone (2012)
(Shadow and Bone Trilogy, book 1)
Leigh Bardugo
"Unlike anything I've ever read."
thumb
Starglass (2013)
(Starglass, book 1)
Phoebe North
"Starglass is a richly imagined, beautifully written book. It's science fiction, mystery, and coming of age story all wrapped into one; creative but also firmly grounded in a real human experience, with all its loss, pain, and disillusionment—but also beauty, hope, and belonging. A wonderful story."

Binti (2015)
(Binti, book 1)
Nnedi Okorafor
"Okorafor's writing is wonderful, and the details of her world-building -- including Binti's rich culture of origin, living spaceships, and maths that reads almost like music -- are complex and fascinating."
