Today’s YA Spotlight features a powerful and inspiring memoir and a magical fantasy sequel.

WHEN THEY CALL YOU A TERRORIST (YA Edition): A Story of Black Live Matter and the Power To Change the World by Patrisse Khan-Cullors and ahsa bandele

“This book is more than the origin story of BLM and more than Khan-Cullors’s revolutionary journey. She creates space for difficult thoughts and conversations to begin . . . An essential purchase for all high school libraries. Students will learn about BLM’s beginnings and empathize with the pilgrimage of one individual discovering her true self.”

THE SILVERED SERPENTS by Roshani Chokshi

“As always, Chokshi’s prose is mesmerizing and haunting, but the story’s magic emanates from a poignant but tortured romance. The Silvered Serpents will hold its readers (willingly) hostage until the explosive cliff-hanger ending, after which they’ll be demanding the next installment.”

“The sleeker, smarter, sharper, and bloodier follow-up that fans of THE GILDED WOLVES deserve.” —School Library Journal, starred review
