Cassandra Clare meets Caribbean legend in this action-packed urban fantasy from a bold new talent.

Sierra Santiago was looking forward to a fun summer of making art, hanging out with her friends, and skating around Brooklyn. But then a weird zombie guy crashes the first party of the season. Sierra's near-comatose abuelo begins to say "No importa" over and over. And when the graffiti murals in Bed-Stuy start to weep . . . Well, something stranger than the usual New York mayhem is going on.

Sierra soon discovers a supernatural order called the Shadowshapers, who connect with spirits via paintings, music, and stories. Her grandfather once shared the order's secrets with an anthropologist, Dr. Jonathon Wick, who turned the Caribbean magic to his own foul ends. Now Wick wants to become the ultimate Shadowshaper by killing all the others, one by one. With the help of her friends and the hot graffiti artist Robbie, Sierra must dodge Wick's supernatural creations, harness her own Shadowshaping abilities, and save her family's past, present, and future.

Praise for Daniel José Older:" It's funny and wise and keeps you turning pages and the prose is truly fresh. It's so rare to read something that doesn't sound like anything you've read before, and so invigorating." - John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars "A rising star of the genre." -Publishers Weekly " [Salsa Nocturna] had everything I wanted: noir and horror and mystery and fantasy, all mixed up and flavored with fresh attitude. And I loved every bit of it." - N.K. Jemisin, author of The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms "Excellent diverse genre fiction in an appealing package." -School Library Journal, starred review:"Sometimes funny and sometimes striking, Older's comfortable prose seamlessly blends English and Spanish. Warm, strong, vernacular, dynamic-a must." -Kirkus starred review
