Julie Buntin
(Henry Holt & Co., $26.00)


A powerful debut novel that will haunt its readers. Buntin delivers an engrossing portrait of the the interior lives of teenagers capturing all the angst and insecurity surrounding the bond between two young girls. Fifteen year old Cat moves to Silver Lake, Michigan following her parents' divorce and is immediately drawn to her neighbor, Marlena who is older, wilder, and seemingly freer - all things Cat wants to reinvent herself as. In the near future, Marlena will be found dead and Cat will never be the same though she goes on to be successful and live in New York. Told in flashbacks and in the present day, Cat reveals the events leading up to Marlena's death as she tries to find out what really happened. --  CM

"Julie Buntin captures that unique moment at the precipice of adulthood with emotional honesty and insight. She writes the kind of piercing, revelatory sentences you have to read to whomever is near, sentences you find yourself remembering years later."  -- Jonathan Safran Foer

Nathan Pieplow


The first comprehensive guide to the sounds of eastern North American birds, featuring an innovative visual index that allows readers to quickly look up unfamiliar sounds in the field.  Bird songs and calls are just as important as visual field marks in identifying birds. But until now, the only way to learn them was by memorization. With this groundbreaking book, it's possible to visually distinguish bird sounds and identify birds using a field guide format.

Nathan Pieplow has been fascinated by birds since his childhood in South Dakota, and has intensively studied bird sounds since 2003. He is the former editor of the journal Colorado Birds and an author of the Colorado Birding Trail
