For Darkness Shows the Stars (2012)
(For Darkness Shows the Stars, book 1)
Diana Peterfreund
"A smart and sexy tale of star-crossed love that's as thought-provoking as it is heartbreaking."
The Leaving (2016)
Tara Altebrando
"As heart-stopping as it is heart-breaking, The Leaving layers a wildly strange suspense story over a lovely and unexpected narrative of grief, loss, and the struggle to imagine a future in the shadow of the past."
The Possessions (2017)
Sara Flannery Murphy
"Sara Flannery Murphy has written the best kind of ghost story."
The Fall of Lisa Bellow (2017)
Susan Perabo
"A searingly smart and painful exploration of aftermath - the voids left in tragedy's wake, the truths that can never be spoken. To be the one left behind: Perabo never shies away from how much this can hurt. But in her hands, what seems at first like a story of loss ultimately becomes a narrative of renewal and an unforgettable portrait of mothers, daughters, and the tangle of desperation, fear, history, confusion, and love that binds them together."
Aftercare Instructions (2017)
Bonnie Pipkin
"A riveting novel as powerful as it is essential."
The Storm King (2018)
Brendan Duffy
"Brendan Duffy owes me several nights of sleep, because once I finished the first chapter of his novel, I couldn’t stop turning the pages until I’d read every thrilling, unsettling, heartbreakingly lovely last one of them. Duffy’s novel is, on the surface, a gripping murder mystery—but beneath that lies a love story, a cautionary coming-of-age tale, and a devastating meditation on violence and loss. A whirlwind of intrigue, vengeance, and wild longing, The Storm King will sweep you off your feet and blow you away."
Fruit of the Drunken Tree (2018)
Ingrid Rojas Contreras
"From its unforgettable opening image to its heartbreakingly perfect final line, Fruit of the Drunken Tree casts an irresistible spell, summoning us into the fierce, perilous world of two young girls in a nation on the brink. Ingrid Rojas Contreras's lush language finds hidden beauty in even the ugliest pain. A stunning debut."
