I got to read an early copy of Outlawed last year and have been impatiently waiting until it went on sale and I could share it. This book deftly recasts the Western genre through a queer, feminist lens, with lots of fun and adventure along the way. In an alternate 1890s where any woman who can’t get pregnant is suspected of being a witch, teenage Ada barely escapes her hometown with her life. She finds herself at a hideout in the company of the Hole in the Wall Gang, a ragtag group of misfits who each have something they’re running from too. I loved living in this world for the much-too-short time it took me to read Outlawed.
