June Books 5) Redemption in Indigo, by Karen Lord

A really excellent short novel, part of the Hugo Voter Package as Lord is a Campbell nominee this year; a fairy-tale set in Senegal, with various spirit creatures (some of which clearly have sfnal counterparts) helping our heroine interrogate the roles that society has set for her. I can't really do it justice in a short write-up and haven't the energy right now to do a longer one, but there are a load of other positive reviews of this around the internet. I will look out for more from this writer.
