Elisabeth Egan recommends
The Fall of Lisa Bellow (2017)
"Were you ever an adolescent girl? I was. And I wouldn’t go back there for a million dollars. Except I just did, with Susan Perabo as my tour guide. In The Fall of Lisa Bellow, she earns her place as a bridge builder between generations, equally believable and relatable from the perspectives of a struggling teenager and her well intentioned but flummoxed mom. I can’t wait to share this beautiful, funny and tragic page turner with my fifteen year old. I just know it will spark the scintillating, honest conversation I’ve been waiting for!"
The Other Alcott (2017)
"Elise Hooper’s thoroughly modern debut gives a fresh take on one of literature’s most beloved families. To read this book is to understand why the women behind Little Women continue to cast a long shadow on our imaginations and dreams. Hooper is a writer to watch!"
