YA Spotlight (7/13/20)

This week’s pub day party celebrates the supernatural feminist novel set in a slightly different 1987 than we may remember with magic, an irreversible destiny, and saying when enough is enough.

MAYHEM by Estelle Laure

Mayhem Brayburn has always known there was something off about her and her mother, Roxy. Maybe it has to do with Roxy’s constant physical pain, or maybe with Mayhem’s own irresistible pull to water. But when May’s stepfather finally goes too far, Roxy and Mayhem flee to Santa Maria, California, the coastal beach town that holds the answers to all of Mayhem’s questions about who her mother is, her estranged family, and the mysteries of her own self.

“A compelling, unrelenting work of magical realism that will enthrall fans of nuanced feminist revenge fantasies.”–School Library Journal
