If you enjoyed the film’s depiction of female camaraderie and the non-revelation that women can be funny (duh!), then you should pick up the new paperback edition of J. Courtney Sullivan’s novel about a group of college girlfriends navigating the waters of adulthood.
Were you obsessed with the AMC series, where the weather is drizzly and the murder is grisly? It’s based on a Danish show, so go Scandinavian with this thriller from Camilla Läckberg.
Okay for Now
There aren’t any aliens on the loose in two-time Newbery winner Gary D. Schmidt’s latest young-adult novel, but there is an examination of childhood loss, a nostalgia for small-town America in the late 1960s, and that Spielbergian sense that the kids might just be the smartest ones among us.
