A painting links a rare female artist of the Dutch Golden Age with a scion and grad student in "Mad Men" era Manhattan.  Developed, simpatico characters and finely wrought double-crossing in past and present Netherlands, Manhattan, and Sydney make this a very satisfying read. Great for summer, travel, or book groups.

As a bookseller, I read a lot of books. I’ve read a whole heap of staff-pick-able ones in the past few months. But this little aliebn has stayed with me since July; I've read and re-read it and found something new every time. Funny, poignant, and earnest, this book about a lonely alien his animal friends offers plenty of insight on what it means to be human.

Ignore the cover. Instead, imagine some zany, cutting edge fashion illustration that's been run over by a heavy steel sculpture. This is a funny, sad, unique, and deep novel of the lengths two teens will go to get into a private arts high school. Featuring two authentic teen voices (one male, one female) this is not to be missed!
