Etta is tired of not fitting in - not gay enough for her lesbian friends, not sick enough to be officially anorexic, not tiny enough to be a competitive ballerina. But things change when she meets Bianca, a girl in her therapy group with a serious vocal gift and a Broadway dream. Etta's is a fierce and unapologetic voice, telling a story about passion, dedication, and staying true to yourself.

Eliot is pretty sure his uncle’s house in Canada is the worst place to spend the summer, especially since he isn’t much of a swimmer. Early mornings on a fishing boat, gathering maggots for bait, a local bully....it’s not idyllic. But there’s more to Point Aconi than Eliot imagined, and slowly, the place begins to work it’s magic on him. So plunge into this book and prepare yourself for a story that will leave you emotionally pummeled yet refreshed- just like a good day in the sea.

The first in a new series of the Chronicles of St Mary. I could dismiss this as "Connie Willis lite" but it's such wild engaging fun that the comparison doesn't matter.  A time traveling adventure full of mad brave historians, some romance and a few laughs thrown in; it deserves to be a huge hit and your new addiction.

Sequel coming soon.

With access to many key figures and documents as well as members of the Kennedy family, Larry Tye has brilliantly captured the complex personality of one of the most charismatic public figures of the 1960’s. Tye explores the seeming contradictions in Kennedy’s life, a man who first came to Washington as an ardent anti-communist staffer for McCarthy and who became a generation’s best hope for creating a more just, more compassionate, more peaceful world.

General Turyin Mulaghesh wants nothing more than a quiet retirement, but her superiors have other plans. Tasked with finding a missing secret agent in a crumbling ex-divine city, Mulaghesh is quickly entangled in local politics, a bloody insurgency, and the faintest whisper of the goddess of death. This magnificent sequel to City of Stairs stands excellently on its own, but will not disappoint readers of the first installment.
