GOD’S KINGDOM by Howard Frank Mosher

Instead you’ll find a welcome dose of nostalgic realism laced with hard-edged wisdom.” — Kirkus Reviews

A POET OF THE INVISIBLE WORLD by Michael Golding
In the tradition of Paolo Coelho’s The Alchemist, this spiritual fable about a boy born in thirteenth-century Persia with four ears documents his remarkable journey through pain and loss to transcendence. “Beautifully imagined… This mesmerizing novel is a gift to anyone looking for a transcendent reading experience.” — Library Journal, starred review

HOME IS BURNING by Dan Marshall
A BEA 2015 Editor’s Buzz Panel selection, an ALA Annual Read ‘n Rave selection, and a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers pick! Dave Eggers meets David Sedaris in this uproariously funny, unflinchingly honest, and tender memoir from Marshall, who as a recent college graduate, had to return home to help care for his ailing parents. “…funny, heartbreaking, and unapologetically crude. A poignantly provocative memoir.” — Kirkus Reviews

THE CLASP by Sloane Crosley
“Crosley’s smart, sardonic, sometimes-zany, yet also sensitive story is told from the alternating perspectives of these three linked characters, taking the readers along as they reunite first for a friend’s wedding in Miami and then again for a road trip in France, setting off from Paris in pursuit of, yes, a priceless necklace but also of things far more valuable: the truth about themselves and one another, a genuine sense of purpose, and, perhaps most precious of all, a connection to one another.
…a real gem.” — Kirkus Reviews

CORRUPTED by Lisa Scottoline
Bennie Rosato revisits her past when she represents Jason Leftavick, a former client she’s couldn’t free from juvenile detention after he finally stood up to a class bully. Now Jason’s an adult, accused of murdering the very same bully who first got him in hot water. “Both the juvenile case and the murder case are compelling on their own, but the combination and the glimpse into Bennie’s younger self make this a wonderful addition to an always-strong series. Scottoline is an A-lister all the way, and her Rosato series is always an A-plus in terms of reader interest.”
