This week’s diverse new releases:
Like No Other by Una LaMarche (Razorbill)
“Devorah is a Hasidic Jew, and her life is full of loving family, constant ritual, and avoiding outsiders. Jaxon is a smart, funny black teenager who has yet to see much success with girls. Both live in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, but it takes a stuck elevator during a hurricane for the two to share their first words. … LaMarche’s (Five Summers) characters are authentic and fully realized, and the dire consequences that threaten this clandestine romance make the novel read like a thriller.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
The Fire Wish by Amber Lough (Random House)
“In medieval times, during a war between the humans and jinni, sixteen-year-old Najwa lives below the world’s surface in the cavern of crystal, fire, and water, training to be a jinni who can spy on the humans living above them. But her first time above ground, she is enthralled by the beauty of the human world and intrigued by the human prince she sees in Baghdad’s palace. … Lough has created a lyrical story resounding with magic, love, and strife. … This first book in a series will hook young adult readers who grew up on tales of Aladdin and the Arabian Nights and is sure to entice others looking for a tale of romance and adventure.” — VOYA
Thank you! And LIKE NO OTHER sounds fantastic! Can’t wait to read it.
HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY to amberlough and THE FIRE WISH.

3. Gypsum shards jutted out…
Oh, ekjohnston, you had me at Armitage…
