Nathan Ripley recommends
Seven Days (2019)
"Both highly moral and absolutely terrifying. A revenge fantasy enacted with perfect, ambiguous realism."
Throw Down Your Shadows (2020)
"Throw Down Your Shadows blends psychological depth and menace to create a story that is both propulsive and thoughtful: a rich, character-driven novel with touches of the weird and the regional particularities of the Annapolis Valley. Hemming upends the conventions of coming-of-age novels while demonstrating that unique stories of adolescence crashing into adulthood can have universal resonance."
