Daniel Jose Older / Shadowshaper / Fantastic YA Fantasy / New Magic

Daniel Jose Older rocks
With his use of language
Total cultural immersion

Shadowshaper will engage you
A young ‎Puerto Rican woman
Always painting something
Proud of her heritage
Proud of her wild hair
No, you can't

Wondrous build of a magic system
A protagonist to care about
Someone you want to spend time with

Lots and lots of praise
A Top Ten YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults Selection
A Top Ten ALA Quick Pick
A Kirkus Prize Finalist
An Andre Award Nominee
A New York Times Notable Children's Book
An NPR Best Book of the Year
A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year
