Tess of the Road is one of my favourite YA reads of 2018. I love Rachel Hartman's other books (Seraphina and Shadowscale), and I'm a sucker for a book where a strong female character forges her own path in the world. The themes of this book are challenging, real, and relatable and I cannot recommend it enough! Tess may not be a very likeable character at first, but she is real, honest, and facing real world challenges that are not often portrayed in fantasy. Her journey towards self acceptance and healing is beautifully written and something I didn't know I needed to see in YA fantasy until it was in my hands. If fantasy is your thing, don't pass this one up!
Heads up: while this is a stand alone novel, it is in the same world as Seraphina and Shadowscale, so there are a few spoilers for those stories if you haven't read them yet!
