  • The Year of Miss Agnes by Kirkpatrick Hill

We also have new adult books.

Truly, Madly, Guilty by Liane Moriarty (HC/RP)  Centered around a neighborhood barbeque, what happened there and how that has affected everyone involved. They all think “What if I hadn’t gone?” The first part of the book keeps you wondering what happened at the barbeque and the rest tells how each person was affected by what happened.

Little Girl Gone
by Gerry Schmitt (aka Laura Childs) (HC/RP) This book is set in and around the Minneapolis area. A baby is abducted from an affluent neighborhood. Afton Tangler, a family liaison officer with the police department, begins to suspect this isn’t an isolated case and must act quickly before another baby is taken.

We Are Not Ourselves by Matthew Thomas is a story of Eileen, the daughter of hard working and alcoholic parents, who dreams of moving up in the world. As it happens, it’s never enough. The book spans six decades and shows us the social dynamics of the 20th century.

Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. This book has been on the New York Times best seller list for several weeks, and, we have it! This is a story about Cora, a young slave, as she takes the risk to escape. It tells the story of Ridgeway, the slave catcher, who is always hot on her trail. She faces many challenges as she runs from state to state. Does she reach freedom?
