As you might have guessed from my recent review of Highway Bodies, I am a big fan of Alison Evans and their writing and style. I love how queer the books they write are and how their writing seems so raw, and authentic while being completely immersable. So naturally, I’m HYPED for their upcoming novel.
Ever since the witch cursed Babs, she turns invisible sometimes. She has her mum and her dog, but teachers and classmates barely notice her. Then, one day, Iris can see her. And Iris likes what they see. Babs is made of fire.
Iris grew from a seed in the ground. They have friends, but not human ones. Not until they meet Babs. The two of them have a lot in common: they speak to dryads and faeries, and they’re connected to the magic that’s all around them.
There’s a new boy at school, a boy who’s like them and who hasn’t found his real name. Soon the three of them are hanging out and trying spellwork together. Magic can be dangerous, though. Witches and fae can be cruel. Something is happening in the other realm, and despite being warned to stay away, the three friends have to figure out how to deal with it on their own terms.Euphoria Kids Synopsis
Anyone who loves the work of Francesca Lia Block and delights in Studio Ghibli films will be entranced by this gorgeous and gentle young adult novel about three queer friends who come into their power.
I mean read that synopsis! How can you not love a book that sounds that… well FUN!?!?! Knowing Alison’s style this will be queer af. I literally cannot wait and have preordered my copy!
