Week of April 5, 2021

Paperback releases for the week of April 5th include BIG SUMMER by Jennifer Weiner, a deliciously funny and remarkably poignant novel about the power of friendship, the lure of frenemies, and the importance of making peace with yourself through all of life’s ups and downs; JACK, the fourth entry in Marilynne Robinson's now-classic series set in the world of Gilead, which tells the story of John Ames Boughton, the prodigal son of Gilead’s Presbyterian minister, and his romance with Della Miles, a high school teacher who is also the child of a preacher; A LONG PETAL OF THE SEA, Isabel Allende's masterful work of historical fiction that follows two young people as they flee the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War in search of a place to call home; and PRETTY THINGS, a page-turner from Janelle Brown in which two wildly different women --- one a grifter, the other an heiress --- are brought together by the scam of a lifetime.
