Out of Darkness

Top Ten Most Challenged Book of the Year
Printz Honor Book
★ “A powerful, layered tale of forbidden love in times of unrelenting racism.”
—Kirkus Reviews

Reading Group Guide

Forget This Ever Happened

★ “Small-town politics, weird creatures, and LGBTQ first love elevate this fast-paced piece of speculative horror from nostalgic homage to gleeful update. . . . Clarke (Star’s End) unfolds the town’s mystery with a compulsively building menace, while delightfully alien monsters, sweet queer representation, and a riot grrrl soundtrack keep even tense moments fun.”
—Publishers Weekly

What Girls Are Made Of

National Book Award Finalist
★ “Arnold interweaves myriad landscapes, from the parched affluence of California neighborhoods to the ordered sadness of a high-kill animal shelter where Nina volunteers, from the sculpted terrain of Rome’s brutalized virgin martyrs to the imperfect physicality of Nina’s own body, into a narrative wholeness that is greater than its parts. Unflinchingly candid, unapologetically girl, and devastatingly vital.”
―Kirkus Reviews
