The Divorce Papers
The Divorce Papers by Susan Rieger (Other Fiction)
One of the Blind date books. All the nitty gritty of the mechanics of divorce told thru the written word of offers-counter offers and the behind the scenes haggling between husband and wife and their respective attorneys. Unique presentation which held my interest although, fortunately, I have no personal knowledge of the proceedings! -- Added by lhannon on 02/22/2017

Prayers for the Stolen
Prayers for the Stolen by Jennifer Clement (Other Fiction)
This is the Critical Mass book club selection for March,2017. It's the story of a young girl growing up in a remote mountain area of Mexico where the mothers cut their daughters' hair and make them dress like boys to make them less attractive (and therefore less likely to be kidnapped) to pillaging drug gangs. It's also a well-written social commentary on drug smuggling, illegal Mexican immigration to the U.S., and trafficking of young girls. The prose is spare yet original, and mirrors the gritty themes of the book. I really enjoyed this one, despite its noir novel feel. -- Added by Jhusain on 02/22/2017
