David Arnold recommends
Dress Codes for Small Towns (2017)
"A poetic love letter to the complexities of teenage identity, and the frustrations of growing up in a place where everything fits in a box - except you."
Down and Across (2018)
"Arvin Ahmadi's earnest debut is a charming romp of a book, a heartfelt tour of a city through the bright eyes of a hopeful heart. Ahmadi proves his grit and then some with Down and Across."
Twelve Steps to Normal (2018)
"Twelve Steps to Normal is a powerful, heartfelt debut about the lengths we'll go for those we love, and the hurdles we encounter along the way. In pages brimming with honesty, Penn shines an empathetic light on addiction, ultimately demonstrating that forgiveness--not only its redemptive qualities, but its messy ones, too--is well worth the struggle."
