A young law student, an unspeakable crime, and a past that refuses to stay buried.

The child of two lawyers, she is staunchly anti-death penalty.

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
A graphic novel in the form of Ricardo Cavolo's personal diary, which follows the story of music through 101 essential artists; from Bach to Radiohead, to Amy Winehouse, Nirvana and Daft Punk. With over one hundred uniquely colorful illustrations and handwritten text, lists, notes, and personal anecdotes this is a book to delight in.
In Furiously Happy, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jenny Lawson explores her lifelong battle with mental illness. A hysterical, ridiculous book about crippling depression and anxiety? That sounds like a terrible idea.
But terrible ideas are what Jenny does best.
As Jenny says
The premise: a survivalism-obsessed father takes his young daughter deep into European woods and eventually explains that the rest of the world has ended - they are the only ones left. Written through the girl Peggy's perspective, we witness years of this strange relationship, until the plots finally shifts and we are left with closure (of sorts). Award-winning debut author! --Naomi
Drew Smith's Oyster: A Gastronomic History offers readers a global view of the oyster, tracing its role in cooking, art, literature, and politics from the dawn of time to the present day.

Soon to be an HBO series, book one in the New York Times bestselling Neapolitan quartet about two friends growing up in post-war Italy is a rich, intense, and generous-hearted family epic by Italy's most beloved and acclaimed writer, Elena Ferrante, "one of the great novelists of our time." (Roxana Robinson, The New York Times)
Stephen King-esque young adult book that I couldn't put down...highly recommend! -Hana
Andrew, Naomi, and Hana all loved. One of those books about books filled with a fantastical story based in a very strange bookstore in San Francisco. Bonus: the books on the cover glows in the dark!
