Set against the backdrop of a zany summer repertory theater, Brooklyn's journey of self discovery is perfect for teens (and adults) with a passion for the arts. This is the kind of book I wish I had as a teenager!

One of the most unique books I've read this year, Stars Hollow meets Twin Peaks in this magical novel about toxic masculinity, choice and consequence, a town in the shadow of a volatile cliff and the family that protects them by stealing emotions from the townspeople. The voice jumps off the page and the magic is transportive. Read this or we are no longer friends.
