Bryn Chancellor recommends
Beyond the Point (2019)
Claire Gibson
"The book reminds us that in our darkest hours, despite tensions and time, best friends show up, helping us find the light."
Valentine (2020)
Elizabeth Wetmore
"In Valentine, Elizabeth Wetmore cracks open West Texas and lays bare what beats inside: a world at once ferocious, fragile, and furious, where women and girls fight menace from every fanged quarter--land, animal, human. But fight they do, for themselves, for each other, for what's right. Wondrously, amid the sorrow, Valentine thrums with the most staggering beauty, a compassion and tenderness as vast as the sky. You'll read this book like a letter from a lost love, clutched in your hands, heart in your throat. You'll carry it with you forever."
Testimony (2021)
Paula Martinac
"In Testimony, Paula Martinac writes with ferocity and compassion about the destructive force of LGBTQ discrimination, which invades even the privacy of home. Our hearts break and rage for Dr. Gen Rider and others whose lives and livelihoods are threatened in this small Southern college town where history feels all too close to the present. At the same time, the novel magnifies the courage of these complex characters, their humor and empathy, and the saving grace of friendship and love."
