I don’t often read contemporary young adult novels. It’s not because they’re not good — some of them are amazing — but I’m a genre reader at heart, so it takes a special hook to pull me into a contemporary YA. Sister Mischief by newcomer Laura Goode had plenty of those hooks: it’s about queer girls; it’s about hip-hop; it’s about an interracial romance.
And it is one of my favorite books of 2011.
