The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, by Alan Bradley. Everything you want in a murder mystery: a 1950s setting, a crumbling Victorian manor, sparring sisters, magic, stamp collecting, and a murder in the cucumber patch. All narrated by precocious eleven-year old sleuth, Flavia de Luce, who has a prediliction for poison.
Gracefully Grayson, by Ami Polonsky. Grayson Sender has been holding onto a secret for what seems like forever: "he" is a girl on the inside, stuck in a boy's body. Sharing this secret could mean facing ridicule, scorn, rejection, or worse. What will happen if Grayson steps into the spotlight she was born to inhabit?
Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power, by Jon Meacham. Answers the question: what character in history would you most like to have dinner with? Thomas Jefferson, without a doubt.
Meacham weaves together elements of Jefferson's political and private lives to create a book that's easily digestible (and a good refresher) for those of us who didn't pay quite enough attention in American History class.
We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, by Karen Joy Fowler.
Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel. "An audacious, darkly glittering novel set in the eerie days of civilization’s collapse, Station Eleven tells the spellbinding story of a Hollywood star, his would-be savior, and a nomadic group of actors roaming the scattered outposts of the Great Lakes region, risking everything for art and humanity." My review on the New York Journal of Books.
Praise for Little Island
“Acutely rendered details of a beloved natural landscape and
[a] wise understanding of complex human hearts. The tale is
touched with heartbreak but leavened with humor.”
— Reeve Lindbergh, author of Under a Wing and Forward From Here
