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
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

The Lotterys Plus One
The Lotterys Plus One by Emma Donoghue (Other Fiction)
It's an OK story, covering a myriad of social issues such as gender identity, multi-cultural families, gay marriage, mixed race families. It covers a lot, and the layers were so vast, but sometimes a little too thinly covered. I found myself wanting a little more of the background/family dynamics-but with so many characters, I don't know how Donoghue could have done it. -- Added by onecraftchick on 01/18/2018
