Staff Picks

Anna Therese's Pick

Mika in Real Life by Emiko Jean

"Mika is at her lowest point when she receives a phone call from Penny—the daughter she placed for adoption 16 years ago. Penny is determined to forge a relationship with her birth mother, and in turn, Mika longs to be someone Penny is proud of. Faced with her own inadequacies, Mika embellishes a fact about her life. What starts as a tiny white lie slowly snowballs into a fully-fledged fake life, one where Mika is mature, put-together, successful in love and her career.  It is undeniable that this book is at once a heart-wrenching and uplifting novel that explores the weight of silence, the secrets we keep, and what it means to be a mother."
Stephanie's Pick

I Must Betray You by Ruta Sepetys 

"This is my favorite book of 2022. It tells the story of Cristian Florescu who lives in Romania and is blackmailed by the secret police to be an informant. Despite his precarious situation he is still determined to give voice to his people and let the world know what is happening in Romania. This is an extremely well researched book about a time and place in history that I knew very little about. Sepetys' narrative is perfectly paced and will keep you hooked from page one."
