“Inspired by the movie Black Panther and the people of Wakanda, Brittney Morris went home and wrote and wrote and wrote this novel in less than a month. A debut young adult novel, Slay is about a young black teenager who code switches fluently and is the secret game developer of the multiplayer online role-playing card game, SLAY. Imminently relatable for anyone who has compartmentalized and/or hidden a part of themselves from the world for fear of being mocked or misunderstood, this book reminds us all about the dualities that live within us and how to embrace the complexities of our true selves. For ages 13+.”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.

“This book made me cry. I felt so deeply for Sadie as she goes in search of the man who hurt her sister. Sadie goes on a journey from place to place, fighting against her severe stutter along the way, all to find one man. I think the framing of this story was PERFECT. The author splits the narrative between a radio presenter, West McCray, as he investigates Sadie’s disappearance, and the first person perspective of Sadie herself, as she hunts down her sister’s killer. If you like gripping, emotional reads, don't miss this one.”Heather, The Owl Books & Brew

Clap When You Land
“Put this book at the top of your listening list! Clap When You Land is a beautifully written and compellingly narrated story of two half-sisters who are unaware of each other's existence until their father dies in a plane crash. Elizabeth Acevedo not only writes with an exquisite voice, but she and Melania-Luisa Marte alternate narrating with voices that carry into the readers heart and soul. One of the best audio books I have listened to in a very long time.”Mary, Anderson's Bookshop
