"The YA debut we're most excited for this year." --Entertainment Weekly "If you enjoyed Black Panther and Ready Player One, you're going to love this new YA novel." --Bustle "A book that knocks you off your feet while dropping the kind of knowledge that'll keep you down for the count. Prepare to BE slain." --Nic Stone, New York Times bestselling author of Dear Martin and Odd One Out "More than a novel, SLAY is a conversation about safe spaces, why they're necessary for minorities, and why we should champion their right to exist without being branded exclusionary or racist." --Booklist, starred review "[A] not-to-be-missed YA debut." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Morris does a fantastic job of showing diversity within the black community. . . . Gamers and black activists alike will be ready to SLAY all day." --Kirkus Reviews "Readers are invited to learn about the black experience in game culture through a compelling new lens. Exploring different versions of the African American experience, this is an important title for public and school libraries." --School Library Journal "Offers a richly global perspective on the Black diaspora." --BCCB "Wildly entertaining and impressively insightful. Morris is absolutely an author to watch." --Sara Grochowski, McLean and Eakin Booksellers (Petoskey, MI) "I was captivated from the very first page and found myself quickly falling in love with Kiera but even more for what Kiera stood for. I cannot wait for more from Brittany Morris!" --Teresa Steele, Old Firehouse Books (Fort Collins, CO)
