Moonflower by Kacen Callender

Moon, a child experiencing depression, steadily faces their fears in both the living and spirit realms. If I could go back and give my younger self a book, this would be it. Callender gifts us with the language needed to understand our feelings, young or old. There is so much kindness and wisdom within these pages, it will make anyone who reads them feel loved and understood. —Kailey Jo

Midnight, Water City by Chris McKinney

Scientist Akira Kimura—the savior of the world—has been murdered, and it’s up to a retired police officer to figure out why. Old-school noir meets futuristic science fiction in a world where most people inhabit the ocean and few dare to live on the environmentally ruined land. Midnight, Water City’s twist after twist, along with its beautiful world building, kept me hooked the whole way through.   —Kailey Jo

A Tiny Upward Shove by Melissa Chadburn

Marina’s murder awakens the aswang—a spirit bent on vengeance. Little by little, the past unfolds to explain the present. I found myself crying for justice throughout, angered that the world was stacked against these characters from the start. Melissa Chadburn’s gritty debut novel, laced with Filipino folklore and culture, gives us a fresh perspective on issues facing BIPOC women every day.  —Kailey Jo

Braking Day by Adam Oyebanji

A fleet of interstellar travelers are nearing their destination after a seven-generation space journey. Ravi, an engineer-in-training, might disrupt everything when a combination of hallucinations and sketchy assignments leave him digging for answers that don't quite add up. I read this novel cover-to-cover without putting it down because every chapter up until the end left me begging for more answers. Adam Oyebanji's Braking Day is a must-read for fans of space thrillers everywhere. —Kailey Jo
