📒The Girl King ✍ Mimi Yu
📝The Girl King Book Synopsis : “Absolutely fantastic.” -Kendare Blake, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Three Dark Crowns series “Heart-pounding.” -Buzzfeed * “Masterful.” -School Library Journal, starred review In this dark, sweeping fantasy perfect for fans of Girls of Paper and Fire and Wicked Saints, Princesses Lu and Min find themselves on opposite sides of a war to rule their Empire. Sisters Lu and Min have always known their places as the princesses of the Empire of the First Flame: assertive Lu will be named her father's heir and become the dynasty's first female ruler, while timid Min will lead a quiet life in Lu's shadow. Until their father names a new heir--their male cousin, Set. Determined to reclaim her birthright, Lu goes in search of allies, leaving Min to face the volatile court alone. Lu soon crosses paths with Nokhai, the lone, unlikely survivor of the Ashina, a clan of nomadic wolf shapeshifters. Nok never learned to shift--or to trust the empire that killed his family--but working with the princess might be the only way to unlock his true power. As Lu and Nok form a tenuous alliance, Min's own hidden power awakens, a forbidden, deadly magic that could secure Set's reign . . . or allow her to claim the throne herself. But there can only be one emperor, and the sisters' greatest enemy could very well turn out to be each other. This sweeping fantasy set against a world of ancient magic and political intrigue weaves an unforgettable story of ambition, betrayal, and sacrifice.

📒The Girl King ✍ Nadia Whiteman
📝The Girl King Book Synopsis : The Girl King is a collection of poems which exemplifies contemporary Caribbean themes alongside the angst of womanhood in a neo-traditional poetic style. The title expresses the mind-set of the modern Caribbean woman. She is stuck between institutional conventions, the traditions of Black womanhood and her own prerogatives. Many times it seems that she is unable to assume agency as Black women must maintain the balance between the past and the future, between family and new relationships. There is no time to cultivate the self and she remains a fragile ideological construct. The title The Girl King communicates a feeling of social impotence as well as the possibilities which are near. The narrative voice also relates the frustrations of Black youth in the region, the complexities of growing up in a multicultural society and, the challenges political and religious conventions engineer. The four sections of The Girl King take the reader through an intimate story of personal growth through fear, love, awareness and resentment to trepid confidence.
