Comments

I really loved how all these books are about dealing with racism, sexism, and transitioning. All these books teach such valuable lessons that people could use.

The book Long Way Down seems very interesting to me. It holds such a powerful message that impacts people in society.

If you liked Cherie Dimaline's writing, she wrote a short story for the anthology Love Beyond Body, Space, and Time edited by Hope Nicholson. It focuses on LGBT indigenous characters.

If you like this book you should read Fire Song by Adam Garnet it tugs at your heart strings. A beautifully written novel about grief love and not fitting in.

If you enjoyed this book, you should read Bleeding earth by Kaitlin Ward. It's about the earth changing, and there is people fighting over resources.

If you like this book, you should read The Program by Suzanne Young, as they both are emotional novels make you think hard, and be very emotional. They both take place in the future and can resonate with society.

Unwind by Neal Shusterman.
These books are similar as they're both dystopian, alternate universes where the main protagonists are both fleeing from society (so their vital/non-vital organs don't get harvested) and find family as well as friends along the way.

If you liked this sort of post apocalyptic tale with a new twist, you might like exo by Fonda Lee. It takes skill to turn a terrifying world of fiction into important lessons about modern issues . Both of these books do a great job of that!
