This is a book that balances perfectly on the precipice between joy and heartache. It's a story about two siblings transferring to a new school, but it is also so much more than that. You will find discussion of depression/suicidality, sexuality, racism, transracial adoption, and religion all handled with sensitivity and care. But honestly, the sibling dynamics in this book are everything. Read it, then call your siblings.

Erin Morgenstern did some kind of magic when she wrote this book because in all senses except the physical you will be transported to the Night Circus. And I think you'll have a great time there ... I mean there's a magical duel, caramel corn, and a whole circus full of characters to love.

A teenage girl, Silvie, her parents, and a group of archaeology students are spending their summer vacation recreating the life of Iron Age Britons, foraging for their own food and wearing potato sack-esque couture. It won't take long to read this eerie novel, but I guarantee you'll keep thinking about it long after you've closed it. It's got bog bodies, gorgeous nature writing, and deep explorations of misogyny, abuse, nationalism, and sexuality - all in 160 pages.
