Raw, real and deeply hopeful. I will read anything Akemi Dawn Bowman writes. ALICE OSEMAN, author of I Was Born For This and Radio Silence; Bowman dives into the sea of grief with her protagonist and celebrates the kinds of love that are eclipsed all too often. With this remarkable book, she has cemented her position as one of the most progressive and insightful authors of her generation. SAMANTHA SHANNON, author of The Priory of the Orange Tree and The Bone Season series; Summer Bird Blue is without a doubt one of the best books I've read this year. It grabs your heart and won't let go. BOOK RIOT
