"Latinx trans teen boy, hoping to release his cousin's spirit and prove himself as a brujo, accidentally summons the wrong ghost and ends up falling in love with him"...............this honestly sounds like everything i've ever needed in my life, 2020 already serving us

I think 2020 should be renamed 20TRANSty just because of this book and all the #ownvoices transgender umbrella releases coming up.

The magical system is a beautiful homage to the author's Latinx heritage, and it serves perfectly to illustrate the ways that cultural traditions can evolve and support all those they encompass instead of being used as an excuse to exclude those who don't fit neatly into the mold. Yadriel's love for his family and ...more

"women have the power to heal bodies and souls, while men can release lost spirits to the afterlife. But Yadriel, a trans boy, has never been able to perform the tasks of the brujas – because he is a brujo."

I was fortunate enough to attend an event where an excerpt from the book was read and I was immediately hooked. Can't wait for this to come out to go on this adventure!
