Featured Book of the Month
The Keeper of Night by Kylie Lee Baker

The Keeper of Night is the exact book I desperately needed as a teen to help me realize that I was not alone. I am not joking when I tell you that this is the most validating book that I have ever read. I am so happy that it exists and I wish everyone would read it. It is phenomenal.
