Dystopian never dies

I've been itching to read dystopian lately, and not just because of Covid-19. Though, the pandemic is making my itch grow stronger.

Here's a list of dystopian books I'm going to make my way through the next few weeks of my "social distancing."

A Woman is No Man

This story hit me hard. I expected it to be good, but it was so much more than that. It was...a beautiful piece of literature that outlines the life of a Palestinian girl, Deya, age 18, being forced into an arranged marriage.

Suspect Red – Commies and the Red Scare

Well-researched, along with photos, headlines, and historical notes, Suspect Red is a great historical fiction read! Even though it's middle grade, I still enjoyed reading it and learned a bit more about life during the Red Scare. The historical backdrop is woven deftly throughout the story, and at the end, there's a list of resources for further reading.
