Pet by Akwaeke Emezi

This original and bold book is for those who, like me, enjoy enigmas and complex questions. The town of Lucille is free of “monsters” (people who exploit others)—or at least that’s what Jam was taught. When a magical creature called Pet appears, Jam learns otherwise: There’s a monster in Lucille, and it’s in her best friend’s house. Impressively combining mystery with ethics, this story will keep you on the edge of your seat and thinking long after the final page. - Stephanie

There Will Come a Darkness by Katy Rose Pool

Fans of Leigh Bardugo and Sarah J. Maas, look no further for your next read: This epic, high-stakes, multiple-narrator fantasy is for you! Ephyra, Beru, Hassan, Anton, and Jude’s lives are all thrown into chaos when an ancient prophecy begins unfolding. Pool’s fantasy world is detailed, distinctive, and immersive—I felt I was there with the characters and I stayed up too late trying to unravel the various enigmas integral to the story. I’m already looking forward to the sequel! - Stephanie

The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys

As a teenager, historical fiction got me through some rough times. The Fountains of Silence would have been a panacea to my soul. Ana and Daniel come from very different worlds and Daniel’s lack of cultural understanding puts them both at risk. This story is lush and beautiful but exposes the sharp edges of a part of history. By shedding light on the history of fascism in Spain, Sepetys offers a harsh warning to modern readers. - Ivy

Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi

Children of Blood and Bone was one of my favorite fantasy novels of 2018, and I’ve eagerly awaited the sequel from the moment I finished it. Tomi Adeyemi is one of fantasy’s best new voices—the world building and characters are superbly drawn, gorgeously rendered, and very human: Zélie and Amari are brave, charismatic, at times afraid and unsure, but always willing to rise to the challenges thrown their way. I can’t wait to see where they go next! - Stuart

War Girls by Tochi Onyebuchi

War Girls hits the ground running and doesn’t stop until the last page. Full of heart-pounding action and terrible, beautiful technology, Onyebuchi’s created an incredible future Nigeria that jumps off the page. The sister-bond between Onyii and Ify is a bright spark of love and hope in this unflinching look at the toll war takes on children and teens. Give this to fans of post-apocalyptic dystopias and Black Panther—these genius warriors with enormous hearts are prime candidates for the Dora Milaje. - J Gallo

Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera

Move over Holden Caulfield, Juliet is here! Rivera sums up the awkward feeling of being caught between worlds and of trying to figure out what you believe. We follow Juliet on a journey of learning: through the LGBTQIA+ community, the Puerto Rican radicals before her, about her own family, her hero (they’re never who they seem), and most importantly, herself. This book is perfect for teens who have been waiting to see themselves reflected in the books they read. - MJ

The (Other) F Word by Angie Manfredi

We have to talk about the F word. No, not that one: “fat”. Media and even our beloved books send a clear message: fat people are not welcome. Their lack of representation in the aforementioned mediums is hurtful and causes many people to doubt their own worth. This lovely collection of essays by some of the most celebrated YA authors wants to remind you this invisibility is bullsh*t. The road to self love is long, but this book helps immensely. - Ivy

Furyborn (The Empirium Trilogy #1) by Claire Legrand

A pair of headstrong, impulsive protagonists; high-stakes intrigues; ancient prophecies; mysterious supernatural villains; steamy romance…this one’s for fans of the gritty, high fantasy style of Sarah J. Maas and Leigh Bardugo. The 500-ish pages flew by for me, I was so caught up in the interesting characters, intriguing plot, and fascinating world building. The sequel, Kingsbane, is out May 21st, 2019! - Stephanie

The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

Nicola Yoon’s incredible award-winning novel starts with the complexity of the universe and continues with two teens—an immigrant and the child of immigrants, both American—on a single day in New York City. A love story and a story of choices, this book is more real and consequential than most you will ever read. Natasha and Daniel and all the lives they intersect made my breath catch and my mind soar, and made me feel like a piece of the greater wonder. - Jocelyn
