Judy Blundell recommends
Rock the Boat (2021)
Beck Dorey-Stein
"What a cocktail of a book, topped with frothy, delicious wit. Beck Dorey-Stein nails the pathos and comedy of that slippery, sideways path to (sigh) adulthood. We can be awful to the people we feel safest with—those who love us and who have known us the longest—and Dorey-Stein captures that truth beautifully. I’m wildly grateful to have discovered a novelist who delivers this amount of sheer pleasure on a page."
Lucy Clark Will Not Apologize (2021)
Margo Rabb
"Margo Rabb takes the elements of storybook and fable and twines them through a crackling murder mystery. Tender and fierce, witty and wise, this is a tale of the route we take when we grow up and into the love we deserve."
The Nine Lives of Rose Napolitano (2021)
Donna Freitas
"Nine choices, nine fates, one woman. Donna Freitas takes a woman’s most intimate decision and casts a refracting light on the pressures, regrets, and joys that can accompany it. With crystalline prose that crackles with wit and emotional intensity, she reveals how a woman’s effort to be true to her own choices can be a struggle that requires not only everything she has, but everything she might become. Starkly honest, absorbing, and wholly original."
