While young adult novels are making huge strides in inclusive representation, a huge chunk of it has been on the contemporary front – which is one of the reasons I’m so excited for Tristina Wright’s 27 Hours, where four queer teenagers battle to save their homes and every human on the planet as the clock winds down. Wright is heavily involved in the young adult community, constantly advocating for better representation across the board, and I know she’s done the work in her book. This one doesn’t hit shelves until October 3, but I’ve been waiting for it for nearly two years now – only a few more months to go.
