Virginia Hamilton's Justice and Her Brothers is also an AR book, so your teen can get Language Arts credit for reading it and taking the associated test.
"Justice’s brother Thomas can control people with his mind. But does Justice have special powers, too? For Justice and her identical twin brothers Levi and Thomas, the summer begins like any other. But as the slow days pass, Justice begins to notice a strange energy between her brothers, beyond their normal twin connection. Thomas becomes increasingly bossy and irritable, while Levi seems weak and absentminded. And there are changes happening within Justice, as well. Soon she discovers that she possesses a mysterious, extraordinary ability. Will Justice and her brothers uncover the secret behind their newfound powers?"
Every day during the month of October, I'm going to add a book to this page that either features a Black main character or a book by a Black author. I will also add the book to the Alien Star Books Facebook group.
Speculative fiction includes science fiction, space opera, fantasy, urban fantasy, steamfunk, dieselfunk, horror, and more! If your teen or YA reader is looking for something different in his/her preferred speculative fiction genre, I can promise that he/she is going to enjoy the next 31 days!
