The Book of Hidden Wonders Cover Image
$27.99
ISBN: 9780778310006
Availability: In Stock In Store
Published: Park Row - September 1st, 2020

This book is a coming-of-age story about Romilly, the 9-year-old daughter of a father who has written books featuring Romilly and her cat as the lead characters.  The characters in her life are what make this book so unique, both as they appear in her father’s drawings and in her life.  This book can be dark at times, and filled with tension.  It has all the elements of a page turner: love, loss, loyalty & betrayal. --Sina


The Color of Air: A Novel Cover Image

Published: HarperVia - July 7th, 2020

This talented author never disappoints.  The Color of Air is set on the island of Hawaii in 1935 during the eruption of Mauna Loa. Tsukiyama uses lush and sensual prose to describe both the setting of her novel and its characters.  This historical fiction gives the reader an account of the much unknown life of those Japanese field workers that moved their families to Hawaii in search of a better, richer life.   As always, Tsukiyama’s characters are real; both flawed and beautiful as is the island they live on.   This is a great book club book and my favorite of this year. --Sina

American Dirt (Oprah's Book Club): A Novel Cover Image
$27.99
ISBN: 9781250209764
Availability: In Stock In Store
Published: Flatiron Books - January 21st, 2020

This novel’s grizzly beginning will either grab you or turn you away.  It grabbed me.  Lydia who had a comfortable life in Acapulco, Mexico, soon becomes just another immigrant facing the same hardships as so many others as she flees to save her life and that of her 9-year-old son.  American Dirt reads like a thriller while giving the reader a glimpse into the harsh realities of an immigrant’s life. --Sina
