A star for the OTHERBOUND!
Otherbound
Corinne Duyvis

A Kirkus STARRED review for Corinne Duyvis' OTHERBOUND! They had so many good things to say about this book, you might want to read the review (and the book) yourselves, but we love that they praised its "rich worldbuilding, convincing nonheteronormative relationships, balanced class issues, and nuanced, ethnically diverse characters." They say the "well-paced action builds toward an unexpected, thrilling conclusion that will leave readers eager for more from this promising new author." Congratulations, Corrine, the praise doesn't get better than this!
