The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

African American sixteen-year-old Starr Carter lives a life caught between her rough, predominantly black neighborhood and the predominantly white prep school she attends. This precarious balance is broken when Starr witnesses the shooting of her (unarmed) childhood friend Khalil by a police officer. Debut author Thomas is adept at capturing the voices of multiple characters in her powerful, in-your-face novel. (Horn Book Guide)

Black Bolt 1: Hard Times

by Saladin Ahmed and Christian Ward

The king of the Inhumans has been imprisoned! But where? Why has he been jailed? And who could be powerful enough to hold the uncanny Black Bolt? The answers will shock you - and Blackagar Boltagon as well! For if he is to learn the truth, he must first win a fight to the death against a fellow inmate: the Absorbing Man! As a prison revolt begins, Death's Head enters the fray - but is he there to help, or to hunt? And who - or what - is the warden of this strange place? Whatever it is, the Jailer knows only penance and fear. And soon, so will the Silent King!
