The Vanquishers is a 2024 ALA Rainbow Book Selection

"The 2024 Rainbow Book List is excited to present its selection of books catering to LGBTQIA+ youth, spanning from birth to age 18. The compilation includes over 100 titles released between July 1, 2022, and December 31, 2023.

It is critical that the Rainbow Book List, and other book lists like it, are made available to assist librarians, educators, caregivers, LGBTQIA+ members, and community allies in selecting quality books for LGBTQIA+ youth. As attacks against LGBTQIA+ books have become upsettingly frequent, it is important to fight for the inclusion of all stories in community libraries and schools. Our youth deserve to see themselves reflected in their literature."
