Cover Crush: All of Us with Wings by Michelle Ruiz Keil

All of Us with Wings by Michelle Ruiz Keil is another illustrated cover I just adore! I can’t help myself. I love these intricately drawn covers. There is a lot tucked into this cover image, and I think we can assume the story will be just as layered. This is a debut, own voices, diverse, magical realism novel about a girl who accidentally summons monsters after performing a riotgrrl ritual on the equinox. I mean, honestly how could this not be on my list of books I must read?! I adore all forms of contemporary fantasy, or magical realism, or fabulism, throw in riot grrls, diversity, and some LGBT+ story lines and I am all in, 100%. You can check out an excerpt on bustle.

If you are anything like me you will want to preorder All of Us with Wings for the June 18th release, and be sure to add it to your summer reading TBRs!

Michelle Ruiz Keil's #OwnVoices debut is a literary YA fantasy about love, found family, and healing--an ode to post-punk San Francisco through the eyes of a Mexican American girl.

Seventeen-year-old Xochi is on her own in San Francisco, running from a painful past. On a visit to Golden Gate Park, she meets Pallas, a precocious twelve-year-old with a rockstar family that lives in one of the city's storybook Victorian mansions. Xochi accepts a position as Pallas's live-in governess and quickly becomes part of the band's household, fascinated by their free-love philosophy and the happy calm that balances out their glamorous music personas.

But on the night of the Vernal Equinox, as a concert afterparty rages in the house below, Xochi and Pallas perform a pagan ritual that unintentionally summons a pair of ancient creatures devoted to righting the wrongs of Xochi's adolescence. She'd do anything to preserve her new life, but the nightmares of her past are never far behind: the mother who abandoned her, the man who betrayed her, and the loving grandmother whose death left Xochi alone in the world.

With the creatures determined to exact vengeance on those who've hurt her, no one in Xochi's life is safe--not the family she's chosen, nor the one she left behind.
