First Reads Friday: Undead Girl Gang Blog Tour

Today is First Reads Friday, which means we give you the rundown on an upcoming book.  Usually, the rundown is in the form of a review, but this week is going to be a little different.  We’re going to feature some creative content for an upcoming book, namely, Lily Anderson’s forthcoming Undead Girl Gang.

This isn’t Lily Anderson‘s first time on the blog, but that’s because we love her words and wit and her books in general. To top it off, Undead Girl Gang was one of my most anticipated books of the year, so I immediately agreed to host a date on this blog tour without ever having read the book.  As I was seeking inspiration for this post and reading the book, I realized that this was going to be one of my favorite books of the year.  From witchy vigilante justice, to dedicated and positive girl friendships to back-handed comments about racism in a small town, a strong focus on Wicca, body positivity and being yourself, I can’t pinpoint one thing I loved above all else in this book, it was a perfect potion! I am thrilled to tell you a little bit more about this book and then match up characters to their corresponding enamel pins.
