Days of blood and starlight, Laini Taylor.
Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a new way of living one without massacres and torn throats and bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or bastard armies or children ripped from their mothers' arms to take their turn in the killing and dying. Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon's secret temple and dreamed of a world that was a like a jewel-box without a jewel; a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness. This was not that world.

I will always write back: how one letter changed two lives, Caitlin Alifirenka & Martin Ganda with Liz Welch.
It started as an assignment. Everyone in Caitlin's class wrote to an unknown student somewhere in a distant place. All the other kids picked countries like France or Germany, but when Caitlin saw Zimbabwe written on the board, it sounded like the most exotic place she had ever heard of so she chose it. Martin was lucky to even receive a pen pal letter. There were only ten letters, and forty kids in his class. But he was the top student, so he got the first one. That letter was the beginning of a correspondence that spanned six years and changed two lives.
