Sweetness in the Skin (2024)
Ishi Robinson
"Ishi Robinson has written a delightful story set in Jamaica, amid heartbreak, hopefulness, and mirth. This tender, humorous, coming-of-age tale celebrates the flavors and language of Jamaica while unveiling the impact of colorism and class divisions on one family. I found myself rooting for clever, vulnerable Pumkin as she reached for her dreams and yearned for acceptance."
All We Were Promised (2024)
Ashton Lattimore
"A compelling tale of three Black women caught between the promises and threats of a supposedly free, pre-Civil War Philadelphia."
Maude Horton's Glorious Revenge (2024)
Lizzie Pook
"Yet another page turner from Lizzie Pook. Maude Horton's Glorious Revenge is a captivating historical thriller with an unusual heroine at its heart. I loved this story of two sisters, a heartbreaking mystery, and a life-or-death quest."
