This book is magical. I have quite the obsession with Greek mythology and this story simply sucked me right in. It has everything you ask for: love, loss, and lust. You will not be able to put this book down!

I've mentioned this book once already in our Anti Racist Books but I have to include it again here because it is just that good. I picked this up when I was in college and reread it again this year. I loved reading and learning a small part of their culture in Africa and you really get to understand the issues African Americans face when they immigrate to America.

I first picked up this book in high school and fell in love with it. It was probably one of the first book I read written by an Asian author. It tells the story of Japanese internment camps in Canada during World War two from the perspective of a child.

The writing in this book is so beautiful. I could not put it down! You learn to empathize with each character as they struggle to write their stories and the go through the process of getting published.

This story follows a new method of surrogacy in the future and the characters involved all come from very different backgrounds. It touches on society, class, and the different hardships we go through to achieve our goals and dreams.
