Selected as a Best Book of 2023 by Bookshop staff. Don’t miss all of our Best of the Year titles here.

For those of us enviables who may spend an entire languid weekend reading books, rejoice: Elizabeth McKenzie's newest is the perfect getaway. You'll love escaping the boring chaos of your own life into Penny's kaleidoscopic, open-hearted adventures, which begin in medias res on a bus departing Santa Cruz and end on the other side of the world. Actually, everyone just do yourself a favor and pop The Dog of the North on top of your stack—but be advised, this one’s hard to put down.

— Chorel

Recently separated from her unpleasant husband and still dealing with the unsolved disappearance of her parents, Penny is asked to come to Santa Barbara to "deal with" her accomplished but insane grandmother. The novel offers a big sprawling plot that somehow all ties together and a fearless off-beat take on trauma and grief that is the perfect blend of sad and funny.
