The first biography of Washington that I have ever read, but also the first one that looks through a critical lens at the canon that has been established around him (and his muscular thighs) and what his actual legacy should be. Also the graphics are *beautiful*

Think Harry Potter meets Hunger Games but much darker and from the perspective of a witch whose power is to create mass destruction - a power she tries desperately not to use even when faced with grave danger. Such a fresh magic system and characters that are diverse, global, and complex.

This is the singular book that made me laugh out loud in 2020. Dark humor collides with slapstick comedy in a whirlwind that is both touching and freaking hilarious.
