A review by siclarke
Victories Greater Than Death, by Charlie Jane Anders


A teen with a supportive mum, a trans love interest, and a baddie who doesn’t just kill you … he taints people’s memories of you. What more could you want?

Tina's just an ordinary teenager. Except she's actually an alien disguised as a human to protect her until she's ready. When Tina gets … erm …activated, her best friend Rachael recruits the best and brightest of Earth's teens to join them in their mission to save the universe.

This book has it all: action, adventure, found family, intersectionality, diverse characters, geek culture references. There's even a bit of romance – if you're into that kind of thing.

Creative, inventive, original. Delightful characters. A fun, fab read.
