Celebrate Black History Month with Rutendo Tavengerwei!

“Enigmatic and powerful . . . Compact chapters set a brisk pace, punctuated by family letters from North Korea and a scene in the format of a play that flesh out a collective history and entrenched prejudice against Koreans in Japan . . . This complex, layered story, originally published in Japanese, reaches a cathartic conclusion once Ginny resolves to catch the proverbial sky as it falls, thereby forgiving herself and claiming her agency.”
— Kirkus Reviews

A young woman caught in between worlds reconciles with her history.

Happy Book Birthday to THE RECKLESS KIND! 🎂

A genre-defying debut, this q***r historical YA centers a wild and reckless trio who fly in the face of small-town tradition—full of compassion, love, and determination to live the lives of their choosing.

“A beautiful and triumphant debut; this trio of fierce yet loving q***r teens boldly making their way in the world has won a place in my heart, just like they will yours!”—Sarah Glenn Marsh, author of the Reign of the Fallen series

"Alternating between Asta’s and Erlend’s points of view, The Reckless Kind explores the bravery and brutality required to carve out unconventional paths in a time in which otherness was shunned and people were rejected to the fringes of society because of their s*xuality, mental illness, religious beliefs or disabilities. Heath takes great care in conveying Asta and Erlend’s optimism in spite of Gunnar’s harrowing physical challenges . . . Readers who enjoyed the equestrian culture of Maggie Stiefvater’s The Scorpio Races will enjoy the heart-pounding horse race in the final act, but Heath’s thoughtful portrayal of headstrong teenagers who successfully defy the expectations of their time has broad appeal."
—BookPage

In this thoughtful tale, set on a Norwegian island in 1904, a trio of young people reject their community’s traditional values and strive to live together.

Happy Book Birthday to THE PROBLEM WITH THE OTHER SIDE🎂

A searing YA debut that follows the joys, complexities, and heartbreaks of an in*******al romance between high school sophomores that blossoms during a volatile school election.

“By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, The Problem with the Other Side had me hooked from the delightful opening scene . . .The romance is deliciously sweet, even as it begins to grow complicated under a close examination of racism, white privilege, and bigotry. A masterful work of humor, heart, and human connection.”—Alyssa Wees, author of The Waking Forest

HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY 🎂

“Mercury Boys has daguerreotypes and dashing strangers, hiding spots and crossed lines. It's full of secrets and fraught with danger. Ultimately, it's like mercury itself—mesmerizing, terrifying, thrilling, and dangerously beautiful. It's pure alchemy.”—Carrie Firestone, author of The Loose Ends List and The Unlikelies

History and the speculative collide with the modern world when a group of high school girls form a secret society after discovering they can communicate with boys from the past, in this powerful look at female desire, jealousy, and the shifting lines between friendship and rivalry.

Book Review: Michelle Ruiz Keil’s Summer in the City of Roses

"Lush, empathetic, strident, puckish, infused with a street-level punk-rock magic . . .

But it’s there all along, if you’re looking—and this is the kind of book you want to give your full attention to." — Tor.com

"The plot is engaging, but the real magic lies in the characters and their relationships. Each has a condition that they struggle with to varying degrees . . . Their disabilities have a material impact on their lives—and on the story—but, crucially, don’t define them. The author explores their experiences with care and reminds readers that no one is “perfect”; the line between able and disabled is socially constructed and movable . . . A tender tale of q***r love, disability, and self-discovery." — Kirkus Reviews

"Alternative parenting. Arts and maker communities. Street-level social work that included outreach to s*x workers. Feminist activism that included the Riot Grrrls movement. All those threads and more come together in Ruiz Keil’s new novel, Summer in the City of Roses, a coming-of-age fairy tale that draws from Greek mythology and Grimm Brothers lore to tell the story of a pivotal season for siblings Iphigenia and Orestes."
—The Oregonian

Portland author Michelle Ruiz Keil’s new novel draws from Greek mythology and Grimm Brothers lore in telling a pair of siblings’ coming-of-age story.
