“Debriefing: Collected Stories,” by Susan Sontag
Sontag is the clear, precise voice of a generation and the hardships they endured. ~Lacey

“Some Kind of Happiness,” by Claire Legrand
This may be the best coming of age tale for girls. Young Finley deals with her parents’ looming divorce, a terrible family secret, navigating new friendships, and much more — yet the book stays lighthearted and fun. ~Veri

“The Fifth Season,” by N. K. Jemisin
A refreshing new(ish) voice in epic fantasy. Part epic fantasy, part urban fantasy, part sci-fi. You’ll see … just check it out.~Jon

“A Gentleman in Moscow,” by Amor Towles
An enchanting narrative with a very charming character. If you’re looking for a nice work of historical fiction with well-drawn characters, this is it. A good book for a relaxing day. ~Susannah

“Catwings,” by Ursula LeGuin
I read this wonderful series when I was a kid, long before I knew anything about LeGuin’s better-known oeuvre. The story is sweet and subtly deep. A magical story … without magic. ~Susannah

“The House of the Scorpion,” by Nancy Farmer
In the not-so-distant future, there is a land overrun with hackneyed dystopian “Young Adult” novels, where the citizens cower before the ever-present threat of yet another book about a girl who really wants to snog a lame vampire. Just kidding, the time is NOW, and the place is HERE. Read “The House of the Scorpion” if you want to live. ~Susannah

“Feel Free,” by Zadie Smith
Smith’s words are razor-sharp as she dissects cultural and political topics. ~Lacey

“Italian Folktales,” by Italo Calvino
Darkly funny, full of wonder and magic. ~Lacey
