Told mainly through the perspective of her 7-year-old niece, Gussy, the characters are fully realized as sympathetic yet flawed human beings. I was drawn to all, but mostly to Florence’s mother, Esther. Esther’s fierce love for Florence and her sister, and her drive to protect them, propels her actions throughout the book, and she doesn’t allow the reader— or herself—to succumb to emotions until the end of the story. This may be the best book of the year.” Camille Kovach, Completely Booked, Murrysville, PA The Sirens of Mars: Searching for Life on Another World, by Sarah Stewart Johnson (Crown, $28.99) “I loved this quietly gorgeous book. Sarah Johnson Stewart brings her characters to vivid life—philosophers and scientists from the annals of Western history, family and teachers from her own life, or the dusty dunes of the ‘red planet’ itself—with clear, almost poetic prose, detailing the history of humanity’s fascination with Mars, as well as her own.You will leave these pages with a deeper understanding of interplanetary science and the wonder of humanity’s next discovery.” —Jocelyn Shratter, Bookshop Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz, CA 1.

MASS MARKET Another Indie Favorite Say Say Say: A Novel, by Lila Savage (Vintage, $16) “Say Say Say is a small and subtle debut novel that packs an emotional wallop. Lila Savage’s writing is so beautiful and vulnerable it’s impossible to put down. This is the kind of novel that shines with such honesty and compassion you feel the need re-evaluate your life right along with the main character, Ella. I eagerly await reading anything else Savage writes.” —Katerina Argyres, Bookshop West Portal, San Francisco, CA

The Montague Twins is a modern take on the Hardy Boys and the ’60s. This graphic novel expertly mixes magic, detective skills, madcap adventure, brotherhood, and friendship. One of the most fun reading experiences I have had in a while—highly recommended!” —Chelsea Bauer, Union Avenue Books, Knoxville, TN
