I was really excited when I found out that DEAD AIR, the first book in The Kat Sinclair Files, was going to be included on a summer reading list on The Washington's Post's The Lily.
Then I found out the list was 10 Black Girl Books That Will Change Your Summer, compiled by the inimitable Marley Emerson Dias, and I might have yelled out loud on the M train and scared several of my fellow commuters.
Marley is the creator of the #1000BlackGirlBooks campaign, the editor-in-chief of Elle's new zine Marley Mag, and pretty much one of the most successful and savvy 11 year olds on planet Earth.
And she has great taste in music—that list matches each book recommendation with a song, and I could not be more in agreement with the song chosen for DEAD AIR. Kat and I 100% approve. Thank you, Marley!
