Welcome to my Indigo Teen Staff Pick of the Month blog post for April 2018! If you’ve been following my Instagram, you might have noticed that I’ve been posting about the Indigo Teen Staff Picks since November of last year. But I never talked about them on the blog before January. Continue reading to see which book is this month’s Indigo Teen Staff Pick and to learn more about it!
For those of you hearing about Indigo Teen Staff Pick of the Month for the first time, it’s a program started and run by Chapters/Indigo Books & Music Inc. where 100 staff members read a bunch of teen and YA books, and then choose their pick of the month! Each monthly pick is announced by Chapters/Indigo at the beginning of each month (usually on the first Tuesday), and the picks are secret until then! Isn’t that exciting? Please be sure to use #IndigoStaffPicks if you share anything about this on social media, or you want to show off your own copy of whichever month’s Teen Staff Pick book in connection to this program!

Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were targeted and killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.
Now, Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers—and her growing feelings for the enemy.
