Saundra Mitchell recommends
Funeral Girl (2022)
Emma K Ohland
"What a stirring, raw, and brave novel this is, to look directly into our deepest fears and refuse to resolve them! Ohland offers her lyrical hand to share anxiety and grief, and to honor those who experience them. Funeral Girl reminds us that we are all of us fragile and human, but also, that none of us ever have to be alone. An extraordinary debut; an extraordinary new voice."
The Reckless Kind (2021)
Carly Heath
"The Reckless Kind is an exquisite debut. Heath has crafted a folktale about found families and the breadth of love that's both immediate and timeless. I didn't want to put it down—it felt like coming home."
Root Magic (2021)
Eden Royce
"Royce pulls back a curtain and invites the reader to a world within a world, a place in time full of both danger and magic. You won't just read it; you'll live it."
