121 GILES, STEPHEN BOY AT THE KEYHOLE
Hanover Square 2018 1335652922 / 9781335652928 HARDCOVER in Brand New jacket. 
Hanover Square 9/4/2018. New hardcover. in Brand New jacket. Releases 9/4/18. Pre-order today! Store pick: The Boy at The Keyhole is a psychological thriller told from the view point of a 9 year old. Set on an old estate in England in the mid 1960s the gothic feel was unmistakable. Samuel was very believable in his longing for his missing mother, in his spurts of defiance toward the cruel (in Samuel’s eyes) housekeeper Ruth, and in his very vivid and suggestible imagination. I went back and forth from believing Ruth had done something to his mother to believing that Samuel was coming mentally unhinged as Ruth kept telling him. The ending caught me totally by surprise and I am still trying to come to terms with what happened, and how and why it happened. This would be a terrific book club book – a quick, easy read with lots of what ifs, and whys. -Nancy M., store volunteer

122 GOLDMAN, MATT GONE TO DUST
Forge Books 2018 0765391309 / 9780765391308 PAPERBACK . 
Forge Books 5/1/2018. New paperback. Store pick, recommended by Nancy M.: A good, old-fashioned detective novel, only with cell phones and texting! Smartly written, PI Nils Shapiro is not warm and fuzzy, but he’s a good guy. His wit is fun and funny. A complex story of murder and mayhem that unfolds slowly as all the characters take their places, and then builds into an exciting climax with a dramatic ending. I loved this guy. Can’t wait for the next book! -Nancy M., store volunteer

123 GOODMAN, CAROL OTHER MOTHER
William Morrow 2018 0062562649 / 9780062562647 PAPERBACK . 
William Morrow 3/27/2018. New paperback. Store pick: Daphne and Laurel are new mothers – both suffering from postpartum depression and a history of other mental illness in their past, or so we are led to believe. They meet at a group to help new mothers and even though the two couldn’t be more different they become close friends. Daphne idolizes Laurel and Laurel takes Daphne under her wing to help improve her. In the process Daphne looks and acts more and more like Laurel. The story is told in first person by Daphne and then with journal entries from Daphne, Laurel and Edith. The locale shifts from their home town to an old mental institution and the house that is on the same grounds. The story is a scary look at mental illness and how an already damaged mind is so susceptible to suggestion and how intrusive thoughts can really affect your hold on reality. While I eventually predicted a few of the twists I was taken totally by surprise by the ending. I think this is the first novel I have ever read with a warning at the beginning of the book that women with postpartum OCD and other mental disorders are advised NOT to read the book. But, now that I have read it I certainly understand why the warning was necessary! -Nancy M., store volunteer

124 GRANT, ADAM M. GIVE AND TAKE: WHY HELPING OTHERS DRIVES OUR SUCCESS
Penguin Books 2014 0143124986 / 9780143124986 PAPERBACK . 
Penguin Books 3/25/2014. New paperback. Store pick, recommended by Jill: Reading Give and Take is a mind-opening process as Adam Grant takes the conventional wisdom and turns it on its head to prove that people with honesty and integrity who believe in a 'pay it forward' system are some of the most successful Americans and that 'greed is good', only-out-for-themselves takers lose out over the long run. -Jill Hendrix, store owner

125 GRAVES, TRACEY GARVIS GIRL HE USED TO KNOW
St. Martin's Press 2019 1250200350 / 9781250200358 HARDCOVER in Brand New jacket. 
St. Martin's Press 4/2/2019. New hardcover. in Brand New jacket. Releases 4/2/19. Pre-order today! Store pick: Annika is a beautiful girl who doesn't really fit in and never has. Alone for the first time away at college she is adrift. Jonathan is an older student who made a big mistake at his last school, but is basically a decent hardworking young man. Their paths intersect at chess club and neither one will ever be the same. The book captures the couple in college and then in their adult lives after a chance encounter. I don't want to say much about the plot and spoil it for readers, but you follow these two on a path you would never imagine. I think the ending is perfect - it's not magical but doused in the reality of life. The journey these characters take will engage even the most cynical readers, both with challenges and dreams and struggling with how they intersect. With the huge awareness of the autism spectrum I see a real identification with Annika, and the people who love her. -Jackie W., store volunteer (seconded by Jill H., store owner)

127 HACKL, JO WATSON SMACK DAB IN THE MIDDLE OF MAYBE
Random House Books for Young Readers 2018 0399557385 / 9780399557385 First Edition, First Printing. PAPERBACK . 
Random House Books for Young Readers 7/10/2018. New paperback. First Edition, First Printing. Store pick: Like my childhood favorite From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, Smack Dab in the Middle of Maybe is an art mystery, but with a Southern twist. Instead of running away to NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art, our heroine Cricket Overland hides out in a tree house on the edge of a lumber ghost town that holds the clues to discovering The Bird Room her mother has been looking for for years. This touching coming-of-age novel mixes Southern dialect, woodscraft, puzzle-solving, and art into a wonderful adventure that also delicately addresses the topic of mental illness. Highly recommended! Local author! --Jill Hendrix, store owner (Seconded by Melissa O., store employee)

128 HALL, ARAMINTA OUR KIND OF CRUELTY
MCD 2018 0374228191 / 9780374228194 First Edition, First Printing. HARDCOVER in Brand New jacket. 
MCD 5/8/2018. New hardcover. First Edition, First Printing. in Brand New jacket. Store pick: Our Kind of Cruelty is a serious love story – or is it? Our Kind of Cruelty is a story of obsession - or is it one of manipulation by a strong character taking advantage of one who is severely damaged from childhood abuse. Is a narrator unreliable if he truly believes all he says? Our Kind of Cruelty is the ultimate psychological thriller which very cleverly hides until the very end the fact that the entire book is a statement which has great relevance in current culture and a twist that I did not see coming. -Nancy M., store volunteer

129 HANNAH, KRISTIN GREAT ALONE
St. Martin's Press 2018 0312577230 / 9780312577230 First Edition, First Printing. HARDCOVER in Brand New jacket. 
St. Martin's Press 2/6/2018. New hardcover. First Edition, First Printing. in Brand New jacket. Store pick: The Allbright family has barely managed to survive since Ernt returned from a prisoner of war camp in Viet Nam. 13 year old Leni loves her mother Cora unconditionally and she tries really hard to love her father but she doesn’t understand why her mother accepts the abuse and the cruelty her father dishes out when one of ‘his moods’ comes on. In a last attempt to fit into society in a post Viet Nam era the family moves to what is at the time the wilderness of Alaska. They are totally unprepared for what they are about to endure but with the help of the few neighbors they have, they learn to overcome the harshest conditions imaginable. But, they are still struggling to be the loving family they were before Viet Nam, as dark cruel winters cause Ernt’s PTSD to get worse every year. The Great Alone is a beautifully written, remarkable story of what one family can endure and a story of the strength of the human body and the human spirit. It is tragic at times, heartbreaking at times, and beautiful at times. It is a story of cruel love, young love, and above all a mother’s love. It is the ultimate story of survival. -Nancy M., store volunteer (seconded by Linda H., store volunteer)

131 HARPER, JANE DRY
Flatiron 2018 1250196760 / 9781250196767 PAPERBACK . 
Flatiron 6/26/2018. New paperback. Store pick, recommended by Nancy M.: Federal Agent Aaron Falk has not been back to his home town in twenty years. Not since he and his father were run out of town on suspicion Aaron had something to do with the death of his 16 year old friend and classmate Ellie. The small country town of Kiewarra in Australia was suffering from years of severe drought. Businesses have closed and farmers are desperate so no one was terribly surprised when it seemed that Luke, Aaron's former best friend, had taken his own life and that of his wife and son. But, Luke’s parents are sure that something else has happened and they shame Aaron into agreeing to look into the deaths. Richly and flawlessly written, this story has great characters and a stunning plot. It’s hot and it’s dry and you can feel it! Every page builds suspense, and there is just enough reference to the past to keep you in suspense about what really happened twenty years ago and what really happened to Luke. -Nancy M., store volunteer

132 HARPER, JANE FORCE OF NATURE

Flatiron 1/8/2019. New paperback. Releases 1/8/19. Store pick: A company weekend in the thick Australian bush, meant for team-building, goes awry when the women’s team gets lost. Lots of hidden feelings team members have towards each other complicate their mission to get back to the camp. Finally, 4 of the 5 return but they all have a different story about what happened to Alice. Aaron Falk returns after his debut in The Dry to solve this mystery and resolve some personal issues he has been dealing with. Once again the Australian landscape was very much a main character of the book. This time instead of The Dry we have wet, cold wind creating the most miserable conditions imaginable for those who are lost, hungry, and quickly becoming distrusting of each other. The complicated plot, edge of your seat suspense and the vivid description of the conditions in the rugged Giralang Ranges will keep you breathless and glad you are safely curled up in doors reading. -Nancy M., store volunteer
