Ninth House
by
YA author Leigh Bardugo’s debut into mainstream fantasy—a massive critical and commercial success—has clearly won the hearts of Goodreads voters, too. Ivy League freshman Galaxy “Alex” Stern has been tasked with investigating Yale University’s infamous secret societies. What will she find? Oh, it’s a trip, man. Remember Joseph Heller’s warning: “Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you.”
