By Brittany K. Barnett

By Charlotte McConaghy

By Brit Bennett
From The New York Times-bestselling author of The Mothers, a stunning new novel about twin sisters, inseparable as children, who ultimately choose to live in two very different worlds, one black, and one white.
By Abi Daré
The unforgettable, inspiring story of a teenage girl raised in a rural Nigerian village, who longs for an education so that she can discover her “louding voice” and speak up for herself. The story about the power to fight for your dreams is breaking and victorious. Despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles in her path, Aduni never thought about her goal of escaping a life of poverty that she was born to create the future she chooses for herself – and others like her Help the girls too.
By Bryan Washington
A funny and deep story about the family in all its strange forms, the joyful and hard-working vulnerability becoming who you’re supposed to be, and the limits of love.
By Raven Leilani
Irresistibly unruly and strikingly beautiful, razor-sharp and slyly comic, sexually charged and completely absorbing, Raven Leilani’s Luster is a portrait of a young woman trying to make sense of her life―her hunger, her anger―in an abusive era. Describing how hard it is to believe in our own talent, and the unexpected effects that get us along the way is also a disturbing one.
By Silvia Moreno-Garcia
An isolated mansion. A chillingly charismatic aristocrat. And a brave socialite set out to uncover their treacherous secrets. From the author of Gods of Jade and Shadow comes “a terrifying twist on classic gothic horror” set in glamorous 1950s Mexico.
By Phuc Tran
For anyone who has ever felt like they don’t belong, Sigh, Gone shares an ironic, fun, and moving story of displacement and assimilation woven with poignant themes from beloved works of classic literature.
By James McBride
From the author of the National Book Award-winning The Good Lord Bird and the bestselling modern classic, The Color of Water comes one of the most celebrated novels of the year.
Bringing to these pages both his masterly storytelling skills and belief in humanity, James McBride has written a novel every bit as involving as The Good Lord Bird and as emotionally honest as The Color of Water. Told with insight and understanding, Deacon King Kong demonstrates that love and faith live in all of us.
By Stephenie Meyer
