"This debut novel created a magical world that delighted and wowed me. Steeped in Trinidadian myth, it is a rich and alluring love story." —Trey
"It is a gift to have this deeply moving novel as a historical accounting of the Asian experience in late nineteenth century America. Daiyu's story is difficult but she is indomitable, and while you will want to protect your heart, you will also be grateful for giving it up." —Melinda
"The Wedding Crasher may seem like fake-dating popcorn seasoned with rom-com tropes, but it’s a fine dining experience. Solange Perreira and Dean Chapman leap off the page and into your heart." —Lindsay
"Claudia Lin is a quick-witted, well-read wannabe detective in this debut mystery which is woven with dynamic family drama and thought-provoking social commentary on our online world and the information we give out—knowingly and unknowingly." —Kristina
"You don’t have to have read The Great Gatsby to enjoy this literal magical retelling. Just be ready for gorgeous prose and unexpected twists." —Ivy
"LaPointe's beautifully written, elegantly structured memoir hits every high mark of storytelling and truth-telling. It is a good read, an important work, and an exquisite piece of art – a rare combination I cannot recommend highly enough." —Melinda
"Told with heart, humor, and the wisdom of a life lived, legendary actor Danny Trejo shows readers that you don’t have to be mean to be tough." —Aric
"In these funny, poignant, sincere yet self-aware, and at times painfully familiar essays, Stevie Nicks, Twin Peaks, and Red Dead Redemption share equal time with childhood memories, oppressed heritage, adult heartbreak, and magic in ways that will have you demanding more beyond the last page." —Jocelyn
