bookbdayOh what a lovely day for a #BookBday!

ALL THAT FOLLOWED by Gabriel Urza
A Publishers Weekly Best of Summer 2015 selection, a Summer/Fall 2015 Indies Introduce pick, and an August 2015 Indie Next pick! This psychologically twisting debut novel about a politically-charged act of violence that echoes through a quiet Spanish town is “as subtle and enveloping as the txirimiri, a Basque word for ‘rain so fine that an umbrella is useless against it.’” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

FISHBOWL by Bradley Somer
An August 2015 Indie Next pick! A goldfish named Ian narrates the linked perspectives of the quirky residents he witnesses in an apartment building as he plunges from the 27th-floor balcony to the pavement. “Touching and well-written.” — Kirkus Reviews

THE LAST DAYS OF RABBIT HAYES by Anna McPartlin
A Fall 2015 Barnes & Noble Discover New Writers selection! A poignant and ultimately uplifting novel that traces the final decline of a feisty 40-year-old single mom whose seemingly ordinary life is filled with extraordinary people. “McPartlin very effectively captures a family during a traumatic moment. The novel is kept light with a measure of dry humor and many beautiful instances of love, leaving a lighter impression than one might expect. This novel will be torn from the shelves by fans of tearjerkers such as P.S. I LOVE YOU.” — Publishers Weekly readmoreremove

EVERYBODY RISE by Stephanie Clifford
