This is historical fiction at its best. A blend of past and present tells the story of the Tulsa race riot of 1921. A tied-in mystery keeps the story moving, but it was the history of Greenwood that kept me from putting this book down.
When Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of a childhood friend, her two worlds--poor neighborhood and rich private prep school--collide. Thomas's voice is gripping and timely. Soon to be a movie, so read it here first!
After a round of overspending on the parental credit card, Margot has to spend the summer working in her dad's Bronx supermarket, a different world from the fancy private school where she always feels like an outsider.
The Cinderella story for any artsy kid stuck in a dead-end town dreaming of life in the city, a life in which art surrounds you.
Schlosser weaves together the history of WMDs along side the story of a real life nuclear incident (Code named a"Broken Arrow"). Equal parts engaging and terrifying, especially for a work of historical non-fiction.
After a series of bad decisions, including fighting a group of off-duty cops, lands Pepper in a mental institution, he soon finds there are worst things stalking the halls than the power-drunk doctors. In another stunning novel by Victor Lavalle, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is re-imagined as a parable on white saviorism and effective ally-ship. With a buffalo monster.
There is no such thing as having too much Flannery O'Connor in your life or on your shelf. Whether you've never read her work before, or you've written a dissertation on it, O'Connor's stories are always worth reading. Whenever I read her, I walk away not knowing how I feel, but certain I've been changed.
This may be one of the most meta books you'll ever read - a book on the history of bookshelves! Lydia Pyne is an engaging author, and this book is incredibly interesting.
If you’ve had a bad week and need to snuggle down, this is the book to grab. Sarah Andersen’s comics are silly, sweet, relatable, and great for those who like Hyperbole and a Half.
