We Set the Dark on Fire

(2) YA Seventeen-year-old Dani is the new Primera (one wife of two who manages the husband's household and aids in his career) to a wealthy aspiring politician. But the identification papers that place Dani's origin on the advantageous side of the border wall are a forgery. Mejia's inventive dystopian world is full of clear references to our own. Frequent twists, questions of whom to trust, and a clandestine queer romance make for a page-turner.
