81 FRENCH, TANA WITCH ELM
Penguin Books 2019 0735224641 / 9780735224643 PAPERBACK . 
Penguin Books 7/30/2019. New paperback. Store pick: Do you ever really escape the events of your past? This book will give you chills as dire events of the present are related to cavalier acts of youth. The main character is incredibly flawed inside but maintains a facade that others may envy. Perhaps everyone struggles with tragedy, but maybe none more than the previously charmed individual. The book has a great cast of supporting characters that are extremely well developed. Any mystery or literary fan will enjoy this book. -Jackie W., store volunteer

82 GEORGE, JESSICA DAY WEDNESDAYS IN THE TOWER
Bloomsbury 2014 1619632659 / 9781619632653 PAPERBACK . 
Bloomsbury 5/6/2014. New paperback. Store pick: Though a sequel to Tuesdays in the Tower, those new to the series will be fine jumping right in and learning about magical Castle Glower, which rearranges itself each week. Though the youngest, Princess Celie knows the castle best of all her royal siblings. She is the first to find the new tower room the castle has created and the surprise giant egg inside. This is a wonderful fantasy series for those not quite ready for the Harry Potter series. -Jill Hendrix, store owner

83 GIBSON, CLAIRE BEYOND THE POINT
William Morrow 2019 0062853740 / 9780062853745 PAPERBACK . 
William Morrow 4/2/2019. New paperback. Store pick: A poignant story of life at West Point and beyond for females. The athletes at West Point are from many different walks of life. This book focuses on the women's basketball team and paints a troubled picture of the pressure and discrimination that exists. I was particularly interested as I have several friends with daughters who recently graduated from West Point. This book is probably far too close to reality to make anyone comfortable, but an enlightening and compelling read. -Jackie W., store volunteer Signed by author.

Little, Brown and Company 9/10/2019. New hardcover. First Edition, First Printing. in Brand New jacket. Store pick: Malcolm Gladwell has done it again with an elegant deconstruction of an important and timely topic that will shift your perspective and encourage new ways to debate important public policies. His drawn-from-the-headlines examples add to this important intellectual work the fascination and readability of a true crime novel. My hope is that everyone I know will read and discuss this book. -Jill Hendrix, store owner Signed by author.

85 GOLDIN, MEGAN ESCAPE ROOM
St. Martin's Press 2019 1250219655 / 9781250219657 First US Edition. HARDCOVER in Brand New jacket. 
St. Martin's Press 7/30/2019. New hardcover. First US Edition. in Brand New jacket. Store pick: Escape rooms have become very popular for team building and character development in corporations so it was no surprise that Stanhope and Sons decided to use one to perhaps decide which of the team members might be laid off. The team of Sylvie, Jules, Sam and their boss Victor used to be the darlings of the investment banking world but in the past year investment banking as a whole was suffering and their team in particular had some very unusual and spectacular failures. Rumors were floating that some, if not all of them, might be part of a worldwide layoff so when they were ordered at the last minute to show up for an offsite meeting late on Friday afternoon they all complied, albeit very reluctantly. The four entered an elevator to go up to their mysterious meeting and that is when the fun or rather terror began. Welcome to the cutthroat world of investment banking. How does it feel to have it all, and then lose it at the hands of your dishonest co-workers? This high energy thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout. Itís masterfully written, with an uncanny intelligence, and its surprise ending will leave you gleefully satisfied. The best revenge is served cold and to live well. -Nancy M., store volunteer

87 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

88 GRAVES, TRACEY GARVIS GIRL HE USED TO KNOW
St. Martin's Press 2019 1250200350 / 9781250200358 First Edition, First Printing. HARDCOVER in Brand New jacket. 
St. Martin's Press 4/2/2019. New hardcover. First Edition, First Printing. in Brand New jacket. 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)

89 GRIFFIN, LAURA HER DEADLY SECRETS
Gallery Books 2019 1501162438 / 9781501162435 PAPERBACK . 
Gallery Books 7/2/2019. New paperback. Store pick: A really good standalone from Laura Griffin. While not part of the Tracers series, the characters here are as well developed and capture your interest from the first pages. The family dynamics and views inside a marriage are well written and very fast paced. Once you start the book you will find your heart pounding at the risks Kira will take to find the truth. The security team interaction is a good glimpse at men and women who put themselves at risk with every job. -Jackie W., store volunteer

Dell Yearling 7/30/2019. New paperback. Author is local and can personalize books. Store pick: Like my childhood favorite From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E.

93 HALL, ARAMINTA OUR KIND OF CRUELTY
Picador 2019 1250214939 / 9781250214935 PAPERBACK . 
Picador 5/7/2019. New paperback. Store pick: Our Kind of Cruelty is a serious love story Ė 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

94 HANNAH, KRISTIN GREAT ALONE
St. Martin's Griffin 2019 1250229537 / 9781250229533 PAPERBACK . 
St. Martin's Griffin 9/24/2019. New paperback. 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 doesnít understand why her mother accepts the abuse and the cruelty her father dishes out when one of Ďhis moodsí 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 Erntís 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 motherís love. It is the ultimate story of survival. -Nancy M., store volunteer (seconded by Linda H., store volunteer, and Melissa O., store employee)

Disney-Hyperion 5/2/2017. New hardcover. First Edition, First Printing. /No jacket.

The wacky characters (taking turns pressing a button that does NOTHING -- or does it?) and situational comedy will have preschoolers rolling and wanting to read it again and again. And parents won't mind too much, as Harper has managed to capture Willems' talent in appealing to adult readers as much as their child audience. -Melissa O., store employee and mom of 2

96 HARPER, JANE FORCE OF NATURE
Flatiron 2019 1250214629 / 9781250214621 PAPERBACK . 
Flatiron 7/30/2019. New paperback. Store pick: A company weekend in the thick Australian bush, meant for team-building, goes awry when the womenís 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
