Anton DiSclafani recommends
The Wonder State (2023)
Sara Flannery Murphy
"The Wonder State is a slippery, twisty tale about friendship, power, and belonging. Sara Flannery Murphy's worlds are never quite what they seem-this one in particular is electrifying and scary and utterly thrilling."
The Catch (2022)
Alison Fairbrother
"The Catch is an intimate family drama about secrets and what we are willing to do for, or hide from, those we love most. Alison Fairbrother's writing makes her characters, with all their flaws and weaknesses and desires, feel like people you know. Set against the vibrant backdrop of Washington, D.C., The Catch unfurls in entirely unexpected directions and had me utterly engaged from the very first page."
Notes on Your Sudden Disappearance (2022)
Alison Espach
"In Alison Espach's hands, a teenage girl on the cusp of understanding, a dazzling older sister, and a small Connecticut town become a beautifully described world filled with characters I wanted to meet, characters I still think about. Their trials and tribulations and adolescent longing and awkwardness; their love for each other--it all felt amazingly real. Notes on Your Sudden Disappearance is the rare kind of book that made me both laugh and cry. It is hilarious and moving and deeply felt, and I was sad when it ended."
