Thanks for the link and the recommendations! That's a great list, and Part 2 was helpful as well.

I read Among Others early in the year and found it played all the right chords but didn't pull me into the music. Maybe something about the Isolated Girl Blossoms under Long-Delayed Male Attention but I dunno.

I finally got hold of Akata Witch, by Nnedi Okorafor, which I'd been searching for in bookstores but finally just ordered online last week. I read it in two days and found it much more satisfying. Similar themes of Being Different (inside and out), Finding Friends, Learning Through Reading and Facing your Fears, as well as Saving the World with Magic, but for some reason it worked for me as a whole while Among Others didn't.
