Was, wenn deine Liebe verboten ist? Die siebzehnjährige Lily wächst Mitte der 50er Jahre in der chinesischen Community von San Francisco auf. Als sie bei einem Schulprojekt Kathleen kennenlernt, wird ihr klar, dass sie anders ist – und anders fühlt – als die anderen Mädchen. Die beiden freunden sich an und besuchen nachts heimlich eine verbotene Lesbenbar, den Telegraph Club. Hier taucht Lily in eine Welt ein, die sie maßlos fasziniert. Und ihr wird klar, dass sie mehr für Kath empfindet. Doch das Amerika des Jahres 1954 ist kein sicherer Ort für zwei Mädchen, die sich verlieben, schon gar nicht in Chinatown. Als ihre nächtlichen Besuche des Telegraph Club auffliegen, hat dies Folgen für Lilys Familie. Dennoch kann und will sie ihre Liebe zu Kath nicht aufgeben.

Winner of the National Book Award A New York Times Bestseller "The queer romance we’ve been waiting for.”—Ms. Magazine Seventeen-year-old Lily Hu can't remember exactly when the feeling took root—that desire to look, to move closer, to touch. Whenever it started growing, it definitely bloomed the moment she and Kathleen Miller walked under the flashing neon sign of a lesbian bar called the Telegraph Club. Suddenly everything seemed possible. But America in 1954 is not a safe place for two girls to fall in love, especially not in Chinatown. Red-Scare paranoia threatens everyone, including Chinese Americans like Lily. With deportation looming over her father—despite his hard-won citizenship—Lily and Kath risk everything to let their love see the light of day. (Cover image may vary.)

DIVA MAGAZINE 'Lo writes tenderly about the first buds of teenage desire amid a downtown hipster at scene.' DAILY MAIL 'Poignant, vivid and so beautifully written. I adored it.' LAURA KAY A Scatter of Light is a companion novel to the National Book Awards winner and New York Times bestseller Last Night at the Telegraph Club, and is about how the threads of family, inspiration, art, and identity are woven across generations. Aria Tang West thought she'd be spending one last summer on Martha's Vineyard with her friends before starting MIT in the fall, where she intends to study astronomy, like her late grandfather. But after topless photos of her are posted online, she's abruptly uninvited from her friends' summer homes. Aria's parents, a writer and opera singer with plans of their own, send Aria to stay with her artist grandmother, Joan West, in Northern California. Although Aria has never been attracted to girls before, she finds herself drawn to Joan's gardener, Steph Nichols, an aspiring musician a few years older than Aria. The only problem? Steph isn't single; she lives with her girlfriend, Lisa. But the chemistry between Aria and Steph seems undeniable, and this will be a summer that will turn her world upside down.

Vencedor de diversos prêmios, incluindo o prestigioso National Book Award, A noite passada no Telegraph Club é uma ficção histórica ricamente detalhada e um romance de formação delicado e corajoso sobre encontrar a si mesma. Em A noite passada no Telegraph Club, Lily Hu tem dezessete anos e não consegue lembrar exatamente quando a pergunta se enraizou em seu coração, mas a resposta estava em plena floração no momento em que ela e Kathleen Miller caminharam sob o letreiro de neon de um bar lésbico chamado Telegraph Club. Os Estados Unidos em 1954 não são um lugar seguro para duas garotas se apaixonarem, especialmente em Chinatown. A paranoia da ameaça comunista põe todos em perigo, incluindo os descendentes de chineses, como Lily. Com o fantasma da deportação pairando sobre seu pai — apesar de ele ter lutado duramente para conseguir a cidadania —, Lily e Kath precisarão arriscar tudo por esse amor. "A escrita de Lo é tão rica que você quase pode sentir o brilho das luzes de neon irradiando das páginas." - Casey McQuiston, autora de Vermelho, branco e sangue azul "Finalmente o romance juvenil histórico, interseccional e sáfico que tantos leitores estavam esperando." - Kirkus Reviews " A noite passada no Telegraph Club é uma obra de ficção histórica tão meticulosamente pesquisada quanto cheia de emoção crua e autêntica... Grite das colinas mais altas: esta é uma história linda e corajosa, e Lily é uma heroína que os leitores vão adorar." - BookPage "Fazendo referência a marcos culturais e lugares com significado histórico sino-americano, Lo evoca habilmente a San Francisco dos anos 50 enquanto transcende a historicidade por meio de uma exploração sincera sobre identidade e amor." - Publishers Weekly "Um livro emocionante em que a ficção histórica encontra o romance... Imersiva e criativa, Lo se envolve em seu mundo fictício de aventura e adrenalina e segue Lily Hu enquanto a garota procura a mulher que ela ama." - Gay Times "Este livro brilha com as emoções do desejo juvenil." - Sarah Waters, autora de Na ponta dos dedos "Uma jornada de autodescoberta tão necessária quanto perigosa." - PopSugar.com "Malinda Lo é um ícone." - BuzzFeed "Uma história de amor obrigatória... alternadamente comovente e prazerosa." - Booklist "Este imersivo e poderoso romance de formação aborda percepções, expectativas e identidade enquanto arrebata os leitores para boates lésbicas enfumaçadas e a cultura dos anos 1950." - BCCB

“A twisty, dark psychological thriller that will leave you guessing til the very end."—Teen Vogue “[A] riveting read…"—NPR The line between best friend and something more is a line always crossed in the dark. Jess Wong is Angie Redmond’s best friend. And that’s the most important thing, even if Angie can’t see how Jess truly feels. Being the girl no one quite notices is OK with Jess anyway. If nobody notices her, she’s free to watch everyone else. But when Angie begins to fall for Margot Adams, a girl from the nearby boarding school, Jess can see it coming a mile away. Suddenly her powers of observation are more a curse than a gift. As Angie drags Jess further into Margot’s circle, Jess discovers more than her friend’s growing crush. Secrets and cruelty lie just beneath the carefree surface of this world of wealth and privilege, and when they come out, Jess knows Angie won’t be able to handle the consequences. When the inevitable darkness finally descends, Angie will need her best friend. “It doesn’t even matter that she probably doesn’t understand how much she means to me. It’s purer this way. She can take whatever she wants from me, whenever she wants it, because I’m her best friend.” A Line in the Dark is a story of love, loyalty, and murder. ★ "Mesmerizing."—Kirkus, starred review.

The ending had me in tears.”—Malinda Lo, New York Times bestselling and National Book Award–winning author of Last Night at the Telegraph Club For fans of Ruta Sepetys and Malinda Lo, a heart-wrenching queer historical YA romance set in the Swing Youth movement of World War II Berlin Charlotte Kraus would follow Angelika Haas anywhere.
