    satwikagejara's book review was featured in Ash Princess.
    This book is about a princess that is trying to take back her kingdom. Theodosia was six when her kingdom was invaded by the Kalovaxians and her mother, the Queen of Flame and Fury, was murdered right in front of her eyes. On the same day, she became a prisoner in her own castle and was crowed the Ash Princess; as a taunt to her mother’s legacy. She suffers through ten years of humiliation from the Kaiser who loves nothing more than to make her wear a crown made of ashes. One night, the Kaiser makes her kill a prisoner who turns out to be her father to prove her loyalty. After that night, Theo has decided that she cannot simply survive in this nightmare; she needs to fight back. This book is amazing and descriptive. The way the author describes the experiences Theo goes through; it is almost like you can see her pain and fury yourself. The abuse she has to go through makes you understand her philosophy and ideology more clearly. Be warned though; this book is the first of a trilogy so if you read this and enjoy it as I did, you have to read Lady Smoke and Ember Queen.

    This book is from the perspective of both a girl and a boy; hence the title. The girl, Juli, meets the guy, Bryce, two weeks before the start of second grade and she thinks she fell in love. Bryce thinks that her persistence is annoying and he is very cold to her. This continues for six years but Bryce’s feelings change toward her. Unfortunately, he upsets her very much on three separate occasions. If you want to know if they end up together, you should read the book! This book shows how people can change. Since you can see the perspectives of both characters, you can see all the misunderstandings between them, and honestly, it drove me crazy IN A GOOD WAY. Regretfully, there isn’t a Flipped #2, but there is a movie? And I watched it and it wasn’t really that bad? It is on Netfix…and on Amazon Prime if you pay…but read the book first.

    This is a graphic novel about two friends/co-workers at a pumpkin patch. Josie and Deja have worked together at the Succotash Hut for years. But this is the last day before they go off to college. Deja is a witty and confident girl who attracts boys and girls alike; rumor is she has dated pretty much everyone at the pumpkin patch at some point. Josie, on the other hand, is very serious and shy. On their last day, Deja encourages Josie to confess to his unrequited love; the girl who works at the Fudge Shoppe. If they can find her. Deja and Josie go on a goose hunt around the entire pumpkin patch trying to find this girl. But when Josie finds this girl; will it really be what he wanted? This book really caught my attention because of the inclusion of the LGBTQ+ character and the unusual setting. Let's be honest, how many graphic novels are there about love in a pumpkin patch? This book has an awesome plot twist at the end, so you should read it! No…don’t skip to the end of the book to find out what the plot twist is…you know who you are…

    All twelve-year-old Shayla wants to do is follow the rules, but when she starts seventh grade, the rules have changed. Her two best friends seem to be going their own ways and some people at school are saying that she's not black enough. After a ruling in a controversial court case involving the shooting of a black man by a white police officer, Shayla decides to join the Black Lives Matter movement and begins passing out black armbands at school. As the unrest in both Los Angeles and her school spreads, Shayla must figure out if some things are worth breaking the rules. I loved this book because it is amazing and disables any myths about the BLM movement. And did I mention it is amazing!?

    Eleven-year-old Ollie comes across a weeping woman next to a river, holding a book and threatening to throw it into the water. Ollie is impulsive, so she plucks the book from the woman's hand and runs off with it. The book is "Small Spaces," and tells a haunting story of a girl, two boys in love with her, and a farm from hundreds of years ago, and a deal with the sinister specter called the Smiling Man, who grants wishes for the ultimate price. Now, Ollie takes a school trip to a local farm with a haunted history. I am totally getting nightmares from this book but at least I learned to trust your instincts. Loved it and will definitely read the sequel. Dead Voices
