Little Fires Everywhere
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng (Other Fiction)
I liked it. It was a good yarn, but I did not love it. Too much angst between Mother and daughters. My book club loved it though and it provided much good conversation. -- Added by Patti on 01/21/2018

As adults, the children reflect on their childhood as their childhood home on Yarrow Street maybe foreclosed by the bank. The story of Cha-Cha's haint (ghost) takes center stage? Was it real? Has it come back? Did the haint ever leave? Share the laugher, tears, smiles, and wonders as the Turner children relect and see reflections of your own family in the large clan of the Turners. Each child has his/her own personality with his/her own drama. Enjoy the laughs. Quote Next time around she would look for a simple, hardworking man with a good heart, humble aspirations. It was just as Lucille had said: she was eighteen years old and had too much life in front of her to be without love. Lelah had half a mind to tell her sister that slot machines would never get this money, that if anyplace got her money, it would be a proper roulette table. She felt ashamed of herself for the thought. "I think you have a position within your family that affords you a lot of respect but not much true friendship, or a sense of individuality. This ghost, or the memory of it, has bothered you your whole life, but it's also made you feel extraordinary, chosen." -- Added by LTJOR14 on 01/21/2018

How to Find Love in a Bookshop
How to Find Love in a Bookshop by Veronica Henry (Other Fiction)
This was a fun book set in England, in a fictional town near Oxford. Very well written, you got a real taste of being and living there throughout the story. All about a wonderful bookstore and its' owner and the people connected to and with it. I really enjoyed this author. Not a difficult read but a nice trip "across the pond" as they say. -- Added by k2disos on 01/19/2018

The Patience Stone by Atiq Rahimi (Other Fiction)
The Patience Stone tells a story that is both horrifying and hopeful. It is a very fast and easy read. It gives insight into a culture that is very alien (and yet similar in some unmistakable ways) to ours. -- Added by across17 on 01/18/2018

Orbiting Jupiter
Orbiting Jupiter by Gary D. Schmidt (Other Fiction)
Very good YHBA book. Written about serious topics on a level that middle schoolers can grasp. It tackles big things, like foster care, teen pregnancy, child abuse, bullying.... I am not sure, after thinking about it, there was an ending to this I would have been completely satisfied with. -- Added by TruBlu on 01/18/2018
