Why we're excited: Fans of On My Block will devour this heartfelt coming-of-age contemporary story. We had the opportunity to read this one early, and it is just fantastic. Nelo loves her neighborhood, Ginger East, but after a deadly incident at the local arcade, things changed. Nelo's friends moved away — well, except for her BFF Kate. But when Kate's parents' corner store is vandalized, the police and media are quick to point fingers. And as the incident gains national attention, Nelo finds herself at the center of the drama. Worse, her friendship with Kate is growing distant. Will things ever go back to the way they were?
