Stars and more for The Summer Prince! Alaya Dawn Johnson's YA debut has two stars to its name - from PW and Kirkus!

Kirkus Reviews calls it "Luminous."
And there's more to read about The Summer Prince at NPR.org. Here's what they had to say in their stellar review: "This is a book that doesn't condescend....
