TOMI ADEYEMI with CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE - Z lie Adebola remembers when the soil of Or sha hummed with magic. But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Z lie without a mother and her people without hope. Now Z lie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. This tour is for the paperback release.
ALEX LONDON with BLACK WINGS BEATING - In a world that reveres birds of prey above all else, Brysen strives to be a great falconer–while his twin sister, Kylee, rejects her ancient gifts for the sport and wishes to be free of falconry. She’s nearly made it out, too, but a war is rolling toward their home in the Six Villages, and no bird or falconer will be safe.
APRIL GENEVIEVE TUCHOLKE with THE BONELESS MERCIES - The Boneless Mercies are girls hired to kill quickly, quietly, and mercifully. But when an unstoppable monster ravages a nearby town, one of them decides that this is the Mercies’ one chance to get out. The fame and fortune of bringing down such a beast would ensure a new future for all the Mercies. In fact, her actions may change the story arc of women everywhere.
NGOZI UKAZU with CHECK, PLEASE!: Book 1: #HOCKEY - Eric Bittle may be a former junior figure skating champion, vlogger extraordinaire, and very talented amateur patissier, but being a freshman on the Samwell University hockey team is a whole new challenge. A collection of the first half of the megapopular webcomic series of the same name, Check, Please!: #Hockey is the first book of a hilarious and stirring two-volume coming-of-age story about hockey, bros, and trying to find yourself during the best four years of your life.
