This week for the #50antasy2019 challenge I chose an own-voices novel, Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan. Beautifully written and unputdownable. I’m a fast reader, but this one I devoured in one night. I just could’t stop reading.

Note: There’s a content warning on this book for sexual assault, and with good reason. However, I will say I think it’s handled perfectly. Rape isn’t glamorized or taken lightly, and it certainly isn’t used to titillate or shock.
