Cards on the table, this was an odd book. However, it was surprisingly deep and touching. Milk Fed tells the tale of an LA based young woman struggling with an eating disorder who finds comfort in the arms of an orthodox Jewish woman at her local frozen yogurt shop. Both hilarious and incredibly bizarre, Milk Fed's definitely worth reading. ~ Reviewed by Samantha Beitler

A deeply unsettling psychological drama about a woman facing everything she feared about motherhood. Brilliantly paced, Audrain builds a sense of impending doom and dread until you’re engulfed in a full blown nightmare wondering how you got there. Audrain has created an equally heartbreaking and terrifying story that will keep you thinking long after the last page.

A perfect debut for any 20-something who feels lost in the world, this story touches on important issues including race, mental health, and the pressure to live up to high expectations from parental figures and society in general. With amazing lgbtq+ representation and an adorably soft romance, Rogers manages to create a beautifully relatable story about family, friendship, and learning self-care. ~ Reviewed by Madison Gallup

Quirky, sad, and uniquely funny, this is a story about teenage girl triplets (known to each other as One, Two and Three) growing up in a small town that endured an unbelievable, almost unimaginable tragedy. A new kid arrives, and unlike their wary classmates, the girls befriend him and join forces to attempt to save the town. Each chapter is told by a different triplet, and their distinct personalities and roles provide a clever perspective which ties the story together. I loved every single misfit character in this made up, god forsaken town. Several twists and turns, heart touching relationships, and laugh-out-loud moments. A wonderful book! ~ Reviewed by Jen Grigsby

The characters and situations in these invigorating stories, written over a Century ago and set in a long-gone, provincial, Tsarist Russia, jump off the page with such clarity and relatability that they could have been created this morning. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
