Author of “One of Our Kind

“Get Out” meets “Stepford Wives” in #1 bestselling YA author Nicola Yoon’s first adult novel. Jasmyn and King Williams move their family to the planned Black utopia of Liberty, California hoping to find a community of like-minded people. Jasmyn is surprised to find that Liberty residents seem focused on booking spa treatments and ignoring the world’s troubles. Then she discovers a terrible secret about Liberty and its founders. Frustration turns to dread as her loved ones start embracing the Liberty way of life. Thrilling with insightful social commentary, “One of Our Kind” explores the ways in which freedom is complicated by the presumptions we make about ourselves and each other.
