Our next book features a strong female character in a fantasy setting (inspired by Filipino mythology, so double the representation!). The Encanto’s Daughter by Melissa de la Cruz follows MJ Rodriguez, a young woman pushed into the world of Biringan, a magical island inhabited by encantos—fantastical beings. MJ must learn how to become the next queen while navigating court politics and council members who aren’t keen on a half-encanto, half-human as their ruler.

Yes. We’ve highlighted Renée Watson’s Black Girl You Are Atlas in our Black History Month roundup. But we can find intersectionality everywhere, especially in this semi-autobiographical poetry collection about race, class, and gender. The author gives us a look into Black girlhood with a wide range of poetry styles. She speaks on the times when one might feel the weight of the world on their shoulders, which can happen all too often for Black girls.
