The Summer Prince big The Summer Prince
by Alaya Dawn Johnson
Publication date: March 1, 2013 from Arthur A. Levine

The lush city of Palmares Tres shimmers with tech and tradition, with screaming gossip casters and practiced politicians. In the midst of this vibrant metropolis, June Costa creates art that’s sure to make her legendary. But her dreams of fame become something more when she meets Enki, the bold new Summer King. The whole city falls in love with him (including June’s best friend, Gil). But June sees more to Enki than amber eyes and a lethal samba. She sees a fellow artist.

Together, June and Enki will stage explosive, dramatic projects that Palmares Tres will never forget. They will add fuel to a growing rebellion against the government’s strict limits on new tech. And June will fall deeply, unfortunately in love with Enki. Because like all Summer Kings before him, Enki is destined to die.

  1. You always manage to pick such brilliant sounding books to showcase for your ‘Waiting on Wednesday’. I haven’t heard of this one before so I’m off to check off more about it. It sounds really cool and the cover is just incredibly awesome with the light symbols on her arm. Great pick!
