“Imagine an America very similar to our own. It’s got homework, best friends, and pistachio ice cream.
There are some differences. This America been shaped dramatically by the magic, monsters, knowledge, and legends of its peoples, those Indigenous and those not. Some of these forces are charmingly everyday, like the ability to make an orb of light appear or travel across the world through rings of fungi. But other forces are less charming and should never see the light of day.
Elatsoe lives in this slightly stranger America. She can raise the ghosts of dead animals, a skill passed down through generations of her Lipan Apache family. Her beloved cousin has just been murdered, in a town that wants no prying eyes. But she is going to do more than pry. The picture-perfect facade of Willowbee masks gruesome secrets, and she will rely on her wits, skills, and friends to tear off the mask and protect her family.”

What a gorgeous cover! The magic system sounds really lovely too.
I like the sound of this, and it comes out next week!
I’ve seen this one mention quite a bit on Booktube and I’m hoping to read it in November. It just screams late fall/early winter read to me!

I’ve never heard of Elatsoe before, but it sounds so freaking good! Definitely adding this to my TBR. Thanks for sharing 🙂
This is a such a lovely pic, the book sounds great and I’m in love with that cover.
Catching up on blog hopping… This one was on my TBR. I have since read and reviewed it. I think you will enjoy it! In some ways it’s a classic YA mystery but the Lipan Apache elements make it stand out.
