Tiger's Dream, book 5 and conclusion of the Tiger's Curse series by Colleen Houck

Title: Tiger's Dream (Tiger's Curse Series #5), Author: Colleen Houck A tiger left behind.
A goddess in need of an ally.
Stranded in a time and place he never wished for, Kishan Rajaram struggles to forget the girl he loves and the brother who stole her away as he fulfills his divine role--that of assisting the beautiful, yet extremely irritable, goddess Durga.
When the wily shaman Phet appears and tells Kishan that Kelsey needs him, he jumps at the chance to see her again, but in saving Kelsey, he discovers that the curse he thought was over, is just beginning. As time unravels around him, Kishan realizes that the fates of all those he holds dear, lie in hands.
With the power of the goddess hanging in the balance, Kishan must sacrifice the unthinkable to fight the dark forces swirling around the woman he's charged to defend. As he does, he discovers that love and loyalty create their own magic and accepts that he must decide his destiny once and for all.

The Radical Element:  12 Stories of Daredevils, Debutantes & Other Dauntless Girls edited by Jessica Spotswood
Title: The Radical Element: Twelve Stories of Daredevils, Debutants, and Other Dauntless Girls, Author: Jessica Spotswood (Editor)In an anthology of revolution and resistance, a sisterhood of YA writers shines a light on a century and a half of heroines on the margins and in the intersections.
To respect yourself, to love yourself, should not have to be a radical decision. And yet it remains as challenging for an American girl to make today as it was in 1927 on the steps of the Supreme Court. It’s a decision that must be faced when you’re balancing on the tightrope of neurodivergence, finding your way as a second-generation immigrant, or facing down American racism even while loving America. And it’s the only decision when you’ve weighed society’s expectations and found them wanting. In The Radical Element, twelve of the most talented writers working in young adult literature today tell the stories of girls of all colors and creeds standing up for themselves and their beliefs — whether that means secretly learning Hebrew in early Savannah, using the family magic to pass as white in 1920s Hollywood, or singing in a feminist punk band in 1980s Boston. And they’re asking you to join them.
"Twelve stories from acclaimed YA authors focus on women who, one way or another, have radical, groundbreaking experiences...Short story collections can be uneven, but this one has an admirable goal, and there is plenty to love."—Booklist
