I'm Glad My Mom Died
“The descriptions of what the author suffered through as a child stayed with me after finishing the book. A good reminder that we really don't know what goes on in someone's life behind their outward appearance.”Ellen, Banter Bookshop

“I loved Elizabeth Zott! She's a quirky, dynamic, headstrong heroine who is, above all else, a brilliant chemist. She struggles to be taken seriously but refuses to bow to the expectations and societal norms for women in the sixties. The story is funny, profound, entertaining, brazenly feminist, and Elizabeth has the BEST dog ever, Six-Thirty! You don't want to miss this wonderful debut novel!”Polly, The Hickory Stick Bookshop

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow
If you enjoyed The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, then you’ll love Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow.
“As twelve-year-olds, Sam and Sadie nurture a friendship based on shared tragedy and a love for video games. Ten years later, the pair create the video game Ichigo, an instant international phenomena. When their friendship is tested- first by the excesses of success and then by the tragedy of loss- Sam and Sadie must learn to survive this game of life....Though I used to have some fairly respectable Galaga skills, I would not consider myself much of a gamer, but that did not diminish my enjoyment of this book; don't think you need to be immersed in digital culture to love T&T&T...Readers who loved Michael Chabon's Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay and/or The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green should treat themselves to this book!"”Adam, Prairie Lights Books
Nona the Ninth
Locked Tomb: Book #3
“My honest review of this book is basically inarticulate screaming, wailing, gnashing of teeth, rending of garments, etc. I've rarely in my adult life been so INTO a book series--I've re-read and re-listened to Gideon and Harrow multiple times, and Nona will soon join the rotation. These books are bonkers fun and I loved every wild and confusing and sweet and funny moment of Nona, and am eagerly awaiting Alecto! Very glad Nona got her own book--I love her with a similar depth of passion as I do Gideon and Harrow respectively. Remarkable. What the fuck is going ON??? I can't wait.”Gretchen, A Room Of One's Own Bookstore

“An astounding first novel, Sequoia Nagamatsu's How High We Go In The Dark is without a doubt going to be a major event in 2022's speculative fiction. It begins with a virus thawed by an Arctic exploration team, and branches out its far-reaching and long-lasting consequences. It will be a hard read right now for people recently dealing with the losses of our current pandemic, but for that reason it's also an important book. Read it when you're ready to think about hope again.”Emily, Main Street Books Monroe
