Michelle Ruiz Keil’s All of Us With Wings is a magical realist ode to punk rock magic. Set in a San Francisco that looks a lot like ours, All of Us With Wings follows Xochi, a struggling runaway who eagerly joins an interesting family as the governess to the family’s headstrong daughter. Naturally, things get weird and wonderful and strange, and it’s hard to not get sucked into Xochi’s word. This is Keil’s debut novel, and she has a lot of that raw energy currently missing from YA right now.
