Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
<p>"We Set the Dark on Fire burns bright. It will light the way for a new generation of rebels and lovers." --NPR</p> <p>"Mejia pens a compelling, gripping story that mirrors real world issues of immigration and equality." --Buzzfeed</p> <p>Five starred reviews!!</p> <p>In this daring and romantic fantasy debut perfect for fans of The Handmaid's Tale and Latinx authors Zoraida Córdova and Anna-Marie McLemore, society wife-in-training Dani has a great awakening after being recruited by rebel spies and falling for her biggest rival.</p> <p>At the Medio School for Girls, distinguished young women are trained for one of two roles in their polarized society. Depending on her specialization, a graduate will one day run a husband's household or raise his children. Both paths promise a life of comfort and luxury, far from the frequent political uprisings of the lower class.</p> <p>Daniela Vargas is the school's top student, but her pedigree is a lie. She must keep the truth hidden or be sent back to the fringes of society.</p> <p>And school couldn't prepare her for the difficult choices she must make after graduation, especially when she is asked to spy for a resistance group desperately fighting to bring equality to Medio.</p> <p>Will Dani cling to the privilege her parents fought to win for her, or will she give up everything she's strived for in pursuit of a free Medio--and a chance at a forbidden love?</p>
