Want to start a book club with friends or family, but that sounds like a lot of coordinating? Want to make the task of getting the books or coming up with discussion topics easier and on your time? Buy one of our DIY Bookclub Kits! You'll receive copies of Black Water Sister by Zen Cho for everyone in your club, along with question sheets and bookmarks to accompany each book. 

Black Water Sister has it all--quippy familial banter, fast-paced action sequences, twists and turns, and a foreboding magic system. We loved diving into Cho’s take on this Malaysian folktale, one that Jess brings to life so beautifully. Fantasy and mystery at its finest!

When Jessamyn Teoh starts hearing a voice in her head, she chalks it up to stress. Closeted, broke and jobless, she’s moving back to Malaysia with her parents – a country she last saw when she was a toddler.

She soon learns the new voice isn’t even hers, it’s the ghost of her estranged grandmother. In life, Ah Ma was a spirit medium, avatar of a mysterious deity called the Black Water Sister. Now she’s determined to settle a score against a business magnate who has offended the god—and she’s decided Jess is going to help her do it, whether Jess wants to or not.

Drawn into a world of gods, ghosts, and family secrets, Jess finds that making deals with capricious spirits is a dangerous business, but dealing with her grandmother is just as complicated. Especially when Ah Ma tries to spy on her personal life, threatens to spill her secrets to her family and uses her body to commit felonies.  As Jess fights for retribution for Ah Ma, she’ll also need to regain control of her body and destiny – or the Black Water Sister may finish her off for good.
