Happy #BookBday (6/24/14 Edition)

Join us in celebrating #BookBdays for our many June releases!

FLYING SHOES by Lisa Howorth
This “buzz-worthy debut” (Publishers Weekly) novel by the co-founder of Square Books, set in Mississippi in 1996, based on the real-life, long-unsolved murder of the author’s young stepbrother is a July Indie Next pick! “Howorth’s dedication to capturing the messy, fraught and politically incorrect pieces of Mississippi life ultimately makes for a compelling read.” — Kirkus Reviews

ABROAD by Katie Crouch
With comparisons to Amanda Knox, Crouch’s main character is also a foreign exchange student, caught up in the tumultuous realms of friendship and love. “The novel’s voice is absolute, its appeal irresistible, and the ending is simultaneously poignant and horrific. ABROAD will not disappoint any reader, especially those interested in Europe’s rich history and ambience.” — Booklist

KILOMETER 99 by Tyler McMahon
A Peace Corps volunteer and her boyfriend try to leave El Salvador when a mysterious American surfer persuades them to stay—and makes it nearly impossible for them to leave.
