flowing in your veins
to keep you going.

#WeNeedDiverseBooks summer reading series! If you liked Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, try The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani because both have massive world-building, mysterious villains, and a malevolent tournament at its climax.

Several teens have reported that School for Good and Evil was the best book they read this summer (after turning in their summer reading form)!


The web’s best collection of DFW’s oustanding nonfiction…
