Suicide Club

Despite its dark premise and some truly disturbing scenes, SUICIDE CLUB is, at its heart, a celebration of humanity --- its accomplishments and its foibles.


A Gathering of Secrets

Castillo, who cannot write badly, continues to improve and sharpen her vision with each book, casting her sympathetic and believable protagonist in a variation of the fish-out-of-water setting, which is both familiar and unique.


If You See Me, Don't Say Hi

Patel’s collection is not confined to any specific set of scenarios, which is what makes the book so enjoyable.... Patel succeeds admirably with equal measures of humor, pathos, intelligence and sophistication.


The Butterfly Conspiracy

I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book and to watch their relationship grow—not to mention the cryptid name drop that has me chomping at the bit. I’m looking forward to the second book in the series.


Heart Berries

Mailhot alludes at one point to her desire and her felt duty as a Native writer to convey the humanity of her people and subvert stereotypes. She has succeeded by telling the ugly truth with rich and beautiful words, sumptuous imagery and an unforgettable speech. This is a startling book.


Ongoingness

Her book hints at diary-keeping as neurosis, a hoarding that is almost a syndrome, a malfunction, a grief at having no way to halt loss.


Eden Conquered

Eden Conquered remains a middle-of-the-road young adult fantasy that fades into the background of the many, many similar novels that have come before it.


Hello, Sunshine

Following along as Sunshine navigates the tenuous waters of her family relationships and attempts to make amends was actually quite a funny and charming read.


Buzz

Among other things, all of us — "ordinary citizens" as well as conservationists, Hanson says — can work toward reducing the use of pesticides and build up our landscapes to include more flowers and bee-nesting habitats.


Interior

It’s a moving turn in a book that is finally not about the exultation of possession, but the futility.


Old In Art School

Painter’s story begins with the revelation that, “Being seen as an old woman added a new way of seeing myself as reflected in the eyes of others.” But as she drills down on art-making she develops the skill — the artistic mastery — to hold the gaze herself. A great gift of age, and art.
