Caitlin Barasch recommends
Search History (2023)
Amy Taylor
"I squirmed in recognition on nearly every page of this witty, warm, and painfully honest novel. Search History begins as a story of masochistic obsession before slyly transforming into a battle cry for radical self-acceptance."
Who We Are Now (2023)
Lauryn Chamberlain
"A brilliantly paced coming-of-age novel, Who We Are Now stars four memorable characters who each remind me of someone I know and love. Chamberlain beautifully captures how our relationships, dreams, and priorities shift over time, and is unflinchingly candid when describing the sticky mixture of envy and pride we feel when our friends succeed before us. This book is brimming with heart and wisdom; I'll admit I wept several times during the last few chapters, so don't say I didn't warn you!"
Social Engagement (2023)
Avery Carpenter Forrey
"In clever, taut prose exploring our obsession with the tiny screens that shape our stories, Social Engagement somehow feels both modern and timeless - in exposing the ugly (yet universal) parts of ourselves we prefer to hide, Forrey reveals the ways in which we try, and try again, to love ourselves - and other people - properly. A thought-provoking debut with an unsettlingly relatable protagonist you'll wish you could include in your group chat."
