A Sudden Light
A Sudden Light
by Garth Stein
Staff Pick
Stein's timber-baron family saga is built upon, and torn apart by, the lush, woodsy nature of the Pacific Northwest. A teen's first visit to his ancestral home — a haunted old folly of a mansion — introduces him to new family and old ghosts with an angsty splash of young love and hero worship.

The Book of Strange New Things
The Book of Strange New Things
by Michel Faber
Staff Pick
An emotionally atmospheric achievement, I felt as though the author was holding my hand through the entire book. Not only are all of the characters believable, but there is a hopefulness which, despite how fragile and volatile the situations are, threads its way through to the very end.
