Described as “the perfect worry novel”, Jenny Offill’s latest work is about the weather (mainly the looming threat of climate change) but it also speaks to weathering smaller anxieties (politics, marriage, interfamily relationships, a failure to live up to expectations). Told through narrative fragments and wry observations, Weather offers a kaleidoscopic and tender experience of being alive during uncertain times.

Utterly charming. Featuring outcast weirdo children that will win your heart and a deeply satisfying romance, with a side of rising up against injustice. This book feels as familiar in tone as putting on a favorite sweater while still managing to bring something new and special. A great comfort read!

Frances Cha's debut is completely transporting. Featuring four women who live in the same building in Seoul, it's a glimpse into four very different lives intertwining as each faces the challenges and expectations of social and economic hierarchy in modern Korean culture. Fascinating and vivid.

Much like me, the last thing Norris wanted was to move across the country, leaving his friends (and his hockey team) behind to go to high school in Texas. It's hot, it's sticky, and it might as well be another planet. Guess he better find a way to make the best of it...or escape. This book charmed me, in spite of my resistance to go back to the land where football and church are the same thing.

Violet Choudbury sees dead people, and in particular the recently murdered queen bee of her cheerleading squad. For one of a handful of brown girls in a small Illinois town, who wants only to blend in, this is not working well. I thoroughly enjoyed this original, fun, and fast-paced story.

On her 19th birthday, Oona begins experiencing her life out of chronological order, leaping to a random year each New Year’s Eve. Though Oona’s situation is extreme, anyone can relate to her struggle to live in the moment and accept whatever comes next. I looked forward to seeing what each new leap would bring.
