Glass Houses
Glass Houses
by Louise Penny

This is the most riveting and utterly gripping entry in the Inspector Gamache series, and that really says a lot! A figure in black appears in the town square, silent and unmoving. The entire town is on edge until it disappears, and a body is found. The story builds stealthily through the trial, and the parallel challenge facing Gamache at the Surete. This is the best one yet!

Alexa recommends:
by Alice Hoffman

A deeply moving story of loneliness, love, and personal growth after tragedy strikes a young woman on the brink of adulthood. Hoffman's eloquent prose pulls you in and rewards you with every emotion possible.

Glynnis recommends:
Turtles All the Way Down
Turtles All the Way Down
by John Green

This is one of the best depictions of anxiety or any mental health battle I've ever read. John Green portrays how a person can be tortured by their own mind in a way that is incredibly raw, honest, and beautiful.  Ages 14+

They come in different colors and feature sayings like: "I'm totally lacking the zip-a-dee part of my doo-dah day" and "every family has one weird relative. if you don't know who it is, it's probably you". They're back in stock just in time for the holidays, and make a perfect hostess gift!
