April's Book is:
When We Were Magic by Sarah Gailey
Alexis has always been able to rely on two things: her best friends, and the magic powers they all share. Their secret is what brought them together, and their love for each other is unshakeable—even when that love is complicated. Complicated by problems like jealousy, or insecurity, or lust. Or love.
That unshakeable, complicated love is one of the only things that doesn't change on prom night.
When accidental magic goes sideways and a boy winds up dead, Alexis and her friends come together to try to right a terrible wrong. Their first attempt fails—and their second attempt fails even harder. Left with the remains of their failed spells and more consequences than anyone could have predicted, each of them must find a way to live with their part of the story.

A Note from Mariana:
Hello friends! As a queer person of color, I've spent most of the last few years as a bookseller consuming as many books as I could that featured...well, queer people, and people of color! As I've done so, I've noticed a surge in what kind of books and what kind of representation are available. I believe Young Adult fiction is at the forefront of this push for inclusion and representation, and want to share my love for these books with more people! My hopes for this book club are twofold:
1) To provide a space for lgbtqia+ readers to read books that they see themselves mirrored in - as well as books that can provide windows into experiences different from their own, and
2) To provide a safe space for discussion that acknowledges the special and often very personal experience that comes from reading a book that makes you feel seen.
