Mary McCoy recommends
No Boy Summer (2023)
Amy Spalding
"No Boy Summer is the perfect summer hangout book--warm, witty, and heartfelt. Watching Lydia turn into a person who's more than the sum of her romantic relationships is an empowering, relatable journey."
The Silver Blonde (2021)
Elizabeth Ross
"The Silver Blonde is pitch-perfect LA noir and a spellbinding alternate history of Golden Age Hollywood that blew me away with one bombshell revelation after another. Smart, stylish, and inventive. Ross's historical fiction demystifies the past, and makes it real, immediate, and urgent in the present moment."
This Is My Brain in Love (2020)
I W Gregorio
"Anxiety and depression can turn your brain into a fake news factory. With THIS IS MY BRAIN IN LOVE, I.W. Gregorio delivers a warm, honest, and timely story about friendship, family, love and asking for help when you need it. The chemistry between Jocelyn and Will is so crackling and irresistible, you'll fall in love, too."
