The House of Discarded Dreams - Ekaterina Sedia A coming-of-age story of a daughter of Zimbabwean immigrants & her friends with magical realism. I like the dreamlike prose, the interplay between African & American esp. African American cultures, & the occasional social commentaries on culture, race & colonialism (which is imho rare in gerne fiction or YA fiction these days) while avoiding some of the common pitfalls of western left-leaning writers.
