“This is a brilliant reclamation of the young women of Shakespeare. It's about time these girls shook up their own stories. Beautifully read, the poetry of this book cannot be understated. ”Kaitee • River Bend Bookshop
“This book makes me want to live in NYC! I loved her stories, from raising kids, to advice about going to weddings, and to hearing firsthand from Lois. Since I’m a Southerner, I related to many of her essays. A delightful read! ”Sara • Roundabout Books
“Chubby femme bisexual from Louisiana meets effortlessly cool butch Chinese American, except the latter is from the 1970s and is stuck on the subway. Both August and Jane have bounced around the country looking for a home (and an identity), only to meet in New York in what should have been impossible circumstances. August had an unconventional childhood surrounded by a never ending investigation into a missing relative, and Jane survived the violence against queer people as a revolutionary in...”Mary • Raven Book Store
“This narration of Christopher Paolini's "Fractal Noise" is great; complete with intermittent booms. You can hear each character's voice clearly. A small team of four are sent to Talos VII to study a 50 kilometer pit with perfectly smooth sides and unlimited depth. The wind, electromagnetic pulses and sound requires a journey on foot. Each of the team members is bringing their past along which creates a lot of tension and conflict. This will keep you on the edge of your seat. ”Ann • Dragon Tale Books
“In the style of Joan Didion, Schulz examines her grief over her father's death through the lens of what is lost and what is found in in life. Drawing on history and literature, this is not a maudlin approach, but an insightful essay that draws you forward through her story and the universal experience of grieving as life goes on. ”Amy • A Great Good Place for Books
“Desmond challenges readers to recognize how they benefit from poverty through low cost goods, services, and systemic structures that benefit those who already have resources (no surprise - they also have roots in racism and misogyny!). He reminds us that both the rich and poor benefit from government assistance, but only programs for the poor are denigrated. He examines why current programs aren't working, and proposes policies and attitude shifts that might help to close the gap. ”Amy • A Great Good Place for Books
