Grades 9 – 12
Kat Cho’s Gumiho #2: Vicious Spirits picks up right after the events of Wicked Fox – Jihoon is still grieving the loss of his grandmother, and Miyoung is distant as she grieves over her mother’s death and learns to live without her fox bead. The only one who seems ready to move forward is their not-so-favorite dokkaebi, Junu.
In Darcie Little Badger’s Elatsoe, America has been shaped dramatically by the magic, monsters, knowledge, and legends of its peoples, those Indigenous and those not. Seventeen-year-old Elatsoe (“Ellie” for short) can raise the ghosts of dead animals, a skill passed down through generations of her Lipan Apache family. Her beloved cousin has just been murdered, in a town that wants no prying eyes. The picture-perfect façade of Willowbee masks gruesome secrets and Ellie will rely on her wits, skills, and friends to tear off the mask and protect her family.
