The Narrows, Ann Petry. Set in the 1950s, this unforgettable classic deftly evokes a tragic love affair and offers a window onto the powerful ways in which class, race, and love intersected in midcentury America.

A must read!

I read past my bedtime

Required summer reading…

And that's why reading is wonderful.

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken: So so good! When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that gets her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that’s killed most of America’s children, but she and the others have emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story set during the First World War. Well worth reading.
