By Tommy Orange:

There There by Tommy Orange is blowing me away completely. It is the kind of book that I am binge reading, because I frankly cannot stop. It is centered around 12 Native American voices who are all so distinct it isn’t hard to keep up with who’s who; which is an art. It is beautiful, sad, funny, and moving. I’ve read somewhere it’ll probably be required reading one day, it’s just that good. And I full heartedly agree. It’s been a best seller since it came out for a reason.

By Laurie Halse Anderson:

In an indirect sequel to her novel Speak, Anderson has amassed a collection of verse reflecting her life story. This memoir builds slowly from childhood memories to a searing, unflinching look at modern-day rape culture and misogyny. Emotions throb on every page from tender heartache to burning rage. Even for those who are not fans of poetry, Anderson writes in a way that is easily accessible. Readers will not find complex metaphors or literary devices, but rather a soul poured unrestrained onto paper.
