“This is my favorite book, ever. Bray's premise, teen pageant girls stranded on a hostile island, is executed with satire, humor, and heart. Among many other quirks, this novel features James Bond-esque tropes, hilarious 'commercial breaks' from an evil corporation, and himbo pirates. The female main cast is diverse in a way that doesn’t feel like a checklist–the trans representation in particular feels ahead of its time. Just as it took quarantine for so many people to reflect on their lives, it takes a deserted island for these young women to embrace their true selves. The author herself reads this audiobook in all its campy glory.”Sam, Phoenix Books

The Girl in Red
“When people started getting sick, Red started getting ready. A fan of horror stories and survivalist tales, she thought she knew what it would take to keep herself and her family safe. Unfortunately, her parents and older brother weren’t inclined to take her advice. And so she finds herself in the woods, hatchet in hand and backpack on, slowly making her way to her grandmother’s house all alone. The Girl in Red is Christina Henry’s (Alice, Lost Boy) retelling of a classic folktale, in which Little Red Riding Hood is not as defenseless as she seems. A fascinating reimagining, placing ability at the heart of the tale. While Red is strong of mind, body, and spirit, she continues to put one foot in front of the other, letting nothing and no-one stand in her way, and facing the lengths she would go to in order to protect herself and those more vulnerable than her, in order to make it to her grandmother’s house alive.”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.
