The Magician's Elephant is beautiful and magical. Come From Away, set in Nova Scotia during the Second World War, offers unique perspectives, while Our Missing Hearts was fantastic and a bit frightening.
In this coming-of-age book by Ana Pessoa, a young woman named Mary John pens a letter to her friend Julio the Pirate. "The letter runs through a hurricane of emotions ranging from anger, grief and frustration to accepetance and serenity."
Karen Swan's latest book - a kickoff to my Christmas reading - is set in Cotswolds village and the Himalayan foothills and offers great characters and an interesting story.
Another great middle grade book that doesn't shy away from tough topics, this one about a girl trying to recover from the death of a baby she looked after.
Clear off your calendar, because this book will have you reading until the end (and laughing. And crying).
