Sarah Moss’ Ghost Wall is a novella that in few pages manages to capture a Centuries old and still ongoing story of family, cultural, and societal control. The menacing mood and dreamy, yet, precise language pulled me in and kept me enthralled to the last word. While on its own a beautiful piece of short literature, it also functions as a perfect parable on the consequences of isolation, nationalism, and in-group thinking. --Leigh

Pretend I'm Dead: A Novel Cover Image

Published: Scribner - January 8th, 2019

I devoured this book! Pretend I’m Dead is a novel that should go down as a classic coming of age for lost girls. Beagin, and her protagonist Mona, find humor and hope in some of the darkest rooms we know, and Mona’s personal odyssey is a troubled but ultimately fruitful and triumphant search for herself and humanity. Frank, compassionate, and gripping writing. Check out the sequel, Vacuum in the Dark, coming Feb. 2019. --Leigh
