Jeanine Cummins recommends
We Begin at the End (2020)
"I love Duchess Day Radley so much I want to adopt her. She is every thirteen-year-old girl at risk, an outlaw both pure of heart and ill of intent, a fierce and melancholy girl, so memorable she will make camp in your brain and never leave. In We Begin at the End, Chris Whitaker has written a gorgeous, crystalline novel, a cautionary tale about the long shadows cast by our past selves, and one defiant girl with the bravery to hope for something better. I love this beautiful book."
Rockaway Blue (2021)
"Larry Kirwan has written a ballsy, post-9/11 novel like only a New Yorker could. Kirwan punches through the romanticized courage of that awful September day, and finds a gritty, unapologetic voice of truth. This is a rare glimpse into Rockaway, and what the New York Irish suffered in the making of their heroes."
