six of crows is literally one of the best ya books out there right now it takes ya tropes but presents them in a smart and new and interesting way that comments on those tropes but also demonstrates how they can work without being cliche. you have a ragtag group of underdog characters who come together for a heist but each individual is so fleshed out and given a backstory that informs their choices you love every single one of the group. the series also has some of the best worldbuilding. its a fantasy world with magic but it focuses on a part of fantasy world we dont often see: the poverty stricken areas. there are gangs and gambling and prostitution that make the world seem real and gritty and gives it depth. it also is so ambitious in the Issues it addresses but does it in the most tasteful and beautiful way it makes me cry. there are discussions of trauma, sex slavery, agoraphobia, race, religion, class issues, learned racism, nativism, addiction, and ableism. and like none of that is even the main part of the story this is a heist book with magic and the most pure and beautiful romance and friendships … i cant believe this book is getting slept on i need a movie deal for this series asap so young people can experience it and learn about overcoming trauma in healthy ways i would die for kaz brekker by the way
