Riot Headline 10 Exciting Books to Read this Summer

Giveaway: What’s The Best Contemporary YA Book?

María Cristina García lives in New York with her favorite spouse, her favorite toddler, her favorite cat, and her second-favorite cat. When not ranking members of her household, she's catching up on Supergirl, strumming her mandolin, or trying to beat the clock on her library loans. Twitter: @MeowyCristina Blog:

This giveaway asking for the best contemporary YA book is sponsored by Home and Away by Candice Montgomery.

Life is good for Tasia: close friends, supportive family, and a spot on her school football team. But when she catches her mamma hiding a box filled with mementos from Tasia’s life, including a birth certificate with a blank paternity line and a photo of her mom in the arms of some white dude, her identity is suddenly called into question. Turns out, the man she always thought was her father isn’t and she’s bi-racial. Determined to unravel the lies that have overtaken her life, Tasia sets off on a path of discovery, and finds that forgiveness is more than an 11-letter word.
