Where Sleeping Girls Lie

March 19

Illustrated cover for Where Sleeping Girls Lie. The head of a Black teenage girl is superimposed over a gray, cloudy-sky. She has dark brown skin and hair done in several narrow braids. There is a small brown bird perched to cover her left eye, and her head appears to be dripping down, like ink or paint, so that part of her jaw and the ends of her hair are gone. The drips forms the title and puddle at the base of an old-fashioned two-story boarding school.Where Sleeping Girls Lie by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé
Feiwel & Friends

Sade Hussein is starting her third year of high school, this time at the prestigious Alfred Nobel Academy boarding school, after being home-schooled all her life. Misfortune has clung to her seemingly since birth, but even she doesn’t expect her new roommate, Elizabeth, to disappear after Sade’s first night. Or for people to think Sade had something to do with it.

With rumors swirling around her, Sade catches the attention of the girls collectively known as the ‘Unholy Trinity’ and they bring her into their fold. Between learning more about them—especially Persephone, who Sade is inexplicably drawn to—and playing catchup in class, Sade already has so much on her plate. But when it seems people don’t care enough about what happened to Elizabeth, it’s up to she and Elizabeth’s best friend, Baz, to investigate.

And then a student is found dead.

The more Sade and Baz dig into Elizabeth’s disappearance, the more she realizes there’s more to Alfred Nobel Academy and its students than she thought. Secrets lurk around every corner and beneath every surface…secrets that rival even her own.
