Laura Ruby recommends

A Good Idea (2017)
Cristina Moracho
"Sharp as a fistful of broken glass, dark and twisted as the woods at night, A Good Idea is rural noir at its creepy, literary best."

Gem & Dixie (2017)
Sara Zarr
"Packed with Zarr's sharp-eyed, honest observations of human nature, GEM & DIXIE gives us two sisters crushed by the failures of their parents, and asks how bad things need to get before you have to make a change. A road-trip like you've never been on before. "
