Tell the Wolves Im Home: A Novel: Carol Rifka Brunt

Best Books of 2013--AND THE MOUNTAINS ECHOED by Khaled Hosseini--"This is an exquisite novel, a must–read for anyone with an interest in what it means to be alive, anywhere and everywhere." —USA Today

Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword -- "Mirka is just your average, 11-year-old, troll-fighting Orthodox Jewish girl... which is to say, an amazing and unique heroine. Graphic novel with humor, depth, and derring-do."

Overview: Set in a small Cajun community in the late 1940s, A Lesson Before Dying is an "enormously moving" ("Los Angeles Times") novel of one man condemned to die for a crime he did not commit and a young man who visits him in his cell. In the end, the two men forge a bond as they both come to understand the simple heroism of resisting--and defying--the expected. Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction.
