- Brown Girl in the Ring – By Nalo Hopkinson. Found this via Canadian Book review’s blog. She said: “Nalo Hopkinson is one of Canada’s most prominent science-fiction writers. She has been shortlisted for and won several prestigious international sci-fi awards. Brown Girl in the Ring is Hopkinson’s first novel, which was released through a contest where the winner received a publication agreement. The story revolves around a Toronto of the not-to-distant future that has been abandoned by government and police and overrun by gangs and drug addicts hooked on a substance called buff. This novel is a cross between a typical sci-fi and fantasy story; there are many scenes that lean heavily on Caribbean religious beliefs and spirits.”
- Cat o’ Nine Tails – By Julia Golding. Young adult adventure series with a female protagonist. Sounds fun.
