The Midnight Lie by Marie Rutkoski

I was fascinated by this fantasy world where people accept the incredibly unjust caste system. Everyone says, “It is as it is,” but Nirrim starts questioning that after she falls in with the swoon-worthy, enigmatic Sid. I loved piecing together the mystery of the past with Nirrim and was shocked when the truth came to light. I’m already looking forward to the next installment! A great choice for Rutkoski fans and readers who enjoy mystery-driven fantasies with a historical feel.

All the Days Past, All the Days to Come by Mildred D. Taylor

As always, Mildred D. Taylor delivers historical fiction at its best. I've followed the Logan family since I was a kid, reading and rereading Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry, The Land, and the other magnificent books in the series. It was a joy to reconnect with my old friend, Cassie, and follow her personal journey through the civil rights movement. This book isn’t just for YA readers but for everyone, an important and necessary look at our not-so-distant past.
