This gentle queer romance is like a warm hug or a nice cup of tea at the end of a hard day - soothing, comforting and joyful. Simon has always been more comfortable with animals than with people - so of course his arrangement to help take care of Jack's many dogs leads to romance. If you're looking for a comfort read, this is the book for you. ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person

Published: Random House - February 23rd, 2021

This modern-day retelling of Ethan Frome - set in the Berkshires during the Kavanaugh hearings - is a hearty blend of satire and rage. Ali Benjamin is one of our finest writers for children, and this, her adult fiction debut, shows that her writing transcends category. I was swept away by the intimate family drama, played out against the backdrop of #MeToo and the Trump Era. So much has happened in recent years that it can be hard to make sense of it all. Somehow, miraculously, Ali Benjamin does. ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person

Libertie, the freeborn daughter of a Black woman doctor in pre-Civil War Brooklyn struggles to find her own path through America and Haiti in the years before and after the war. The gorgeously simple prose of this novel is filled with big ideas - freedom and loss, the love and anger between mothers and daughters.
