THE GUEST BOOK by Sarah Blake

#1 May Indie Next Pick + Two starred reviews!

“This novel sets out to be more than a juicy family saga—it aims to depict the moral evolution of a part of American society. Its convincing characters and muscular narrative succeed on both counts.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Blake deftly interrogates the many shades of prejudice and ‘the ordinary, everyday wickedness of turning away.’ Blake’s brilliant and ravishing novel promises to hit big.”–Booklist, starred review

MIDDLEGAME by Seanan McGuire

LibraryReads Hall-of-Famer + Three starred reviews + Publishers Weekly’s Best Book of Summer 2019!

Note that some painful scenes feature self-harm and violence. Overall this singular work keeps readers thinking long after the final page.”–Library Journal, starred review

“Shifts and alterations in timelines demand close attention from readers, but McGuire’s rigorous plotting pulls everything together by the end. This is a fascinating novel by an author of consummate skill.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE UNPASSING by Chia-Chia Lin

A Library Journal Best Winter/Spring 2019 Debut!
