READING RECOMMENDATIONS
by Luann Rice

Submitted by Bev Q.
This is a cross between Gone Girl and Stepford Wives. A suspensful thriller that is a reminder of the courage it takes to leave an abusive relationship. Rice does a nice job of keeping the reader just a little uncertain about the killer or killers. She also shows how a tight community can be harmful as well as helpful. A good quick read.
by Christie Tate

Submitted by Kelly K.
What a no-holds-barred exploration of a woman’s mental health journey and struggle with relationships! Beginning with her eating disorder, Tate is super candid and raw, exploring her experience with her psychiatrist, Dr. Rosen, and group therapy over a number of years, leading ultimately to a healthy outlook and positive future.

After spending a year on Mars, Lan and their family must find a permanent home since Earth is no longer habitable. When the generous government on the planet Choom invites the remaining humans to live with them, all seems right in the world but in the 20 years it takes to travel to Choom there is a new government who doesn't share the same idea.

Hilarious and thought-provoking, this sci-fi novel is full of conversation starters and deals with themes such as climate change, immigration and refugees, and acceptance. This is great family read-aloud material!
