Jennifer Niven recommends
The Sharp Edge of Silence (2023)
Cameron Kelly Rosenblum
"The Sharp Edge of Silence is a searingly honest story of sexual assault and one girl's journey to fight for herself in the aftermath. But it's also about friendship and finding one's voice. Quinn is heroic and human and she had my heart from the very first page. Please read this beautiful book."
We Are All Constellations (2022)
Amy Beashel
"I am in complete and utter love with everything Amy Beashel writes, but this one may just be my favourite."
Dark Room Etiquette (2022)
Robin Roe
"I burned through the pages of Dark Room Etiquette - riveted, transfixed, and deeply moved by Sayers' journey and Roe's stunning prose. This book is important and necessary and filled with love and hope. I ached when I finished. The best sort of ache. The kind that haunts you. Dear readers everywhere: read this now."
The Words We Keep (2022)
Erin Stewart
"Wild, beautiful, and free. The Words We Keep is a poetic page turner. A raw, relatable story of mental illness, romance, and the power of love."
Scarlet in Blue (2022)
Jennifer Murphy
"I don't think I breathed from start to finish, but Scarlet in Blue was worth every breathless moment. A haunting, heart-tugging page-turner."
Anything But Fine (2022)
Tobias Madden
"Anything But Fine is everything wonderful I love in a book: characters so real they breathe, a rollercoaster of a story that made me laugh, cry, and swoon, and vivid, gorgeous writing. Brilliant."
