Pride and Prejudicegets remixed in this smart, funny, gorgeous retelling of the classic, starring all characters of color, from National Book Award finalist Ibi Zoboi
“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a review about Pride - an Afro-Haitian-Brooklyn spin on the classic Austen tale - will have to mention all the ways in which this remix hits all the beats of the original. But, Pridedoes more than just give us a re-do of the Austen classic, Zoboi infuses her novel with its own brand of feminism and flair, breathing new life into this story. Great for those who are familiar with the original but works perfectly as its own story.”
“Readers will be rewarded with vividly drawn settings reminiscent of Hawaii and Southeast Asia, exciting action scenes, and a complex protagonist... A broody fantasy with a diverse cast, rarely-seen setting, and compelling heroine who struggles with bipolar disorder.”
Magic, romance, and sacrifice meet in the captivating new trilogy from the author of the acclaimedThe Girl From Everywhere. Blending traditional first-person narrative with ephemera, Heidi Heilig masterfully merges Asian cultures with Moulin Rouge-era France to create a high-concept and commercial fantasy that will enchant fans of Leigh Bardugo and Sabaa Tahir.

The Story Behind The Caged Queen
“Fun and full of truth. To be honest, I'm a little irritated at how good the book is.” —Patrick Rothfuss
In his much-anticipated debut novel, Hank Green--cocreator of Crash Course, Vlogbrothers, and SciShow--spins a sweeping, cinematic tale about a young woman who becomes an overnight celebrity before realizing she's part of something bigger, and stranger, than anyone could have possibly imagined.
Compulsively entertaining and powerfully relevant, An Absolutely Remarkable Thinggrapples with big themes, including how the social internet is changing fame, rhetoric, and radicalization; how our culture deals with fear and uncertainty; and how vilification and adoration spring from the same dehumanization that follows a life in the public eye.This fall's most anticipated YA release is coming September 25, but you can pre-order your signed copy from 57th Street Bookstoday!Signed stock is limited and available on a first come, first served basis.
